"You are the universe expressing itself as human for a little while." -Eckhart Tolle

cresting and crashing
swaying side to side
are my constant thoughts
why can't i decide

my stomach churns in confusion
my heart skips a beat
thoughts are racing through my mind
my life is no longer neat

i need to get away
take a break, take a breath
i glance up and there you are
almost perfect, picturesque

i'm so shy i turn away
i look down at my hand
you lift my chin and bring it toward yours
now my heart is in command

i order the waves to settle
my stomach to cease its churning
i command my mind to calm
i am no longer yearning

i am finally at peace with myself
for i have found what i need
everything was solved, worked out
it all began with you, indeed.

The author's comments:
it is a fantasy--i feel like the first 2 stanzas but i want someone to whisk me away and spare me the suffering--it is a distant reality, but a reality so my hopes aren't completely wasted. (i hope)
