Woven Threads

Unraveled and bewildered, should I not believe
Your eyes as they catch mine so deeply
binding me so far inside of you

This loom of words, warped and knotted
My thoughts tumbling into your depths
Can't speak or breathe before those

Who would destroy me, tangled, captured
So careful not to think of you, of your eyes
Or touch, your caress or love unbound

Not to feel your face placed gently against mine
These woven threads, I know I'm in a dream
Unraveling into air, unraveling toward sky

I cannot escape your shattering wind,
These bonds burning me into wordless despair,
Free me now, let me find the end of this love
