Our Love

December 3, 2008
By Brittany Koll, Coatesville, IN

Tears cascading down the contours of my face
Like modest waterfalls that eat away at the very rocks beneath them
And like the waterfalls, the sorrow wears away at the very essence of my soul
Miles away, alone with the obscurity of our love
I know you feel the same way I do
I know you wish to turn your back the clocks
To reverse the Earth's rotation and bring me back to you
Please do, break away from the laws of knowledge
Prove that our love is stronger; and show it to the world
Tell them you love me; no, scream it to the Heavens
Let them know that you're mine and I yours
Show the world that our love breaks all barriers; nothing can hold us back
Reverse the clocks so I can be next to you again
Be here with me to wipe my tears away; stop the corrosion of my soul
Let your presence fill in the black hole your absence left me
Love me more than you ever could; and let your fire burn
For mine burns for you alone; no one else can fill the barrenness
Please save me from the tenderness cause by your absence
Hold me in your arms
Whisper your love in my ear
Show me that our love will conquer all opponents
Alas, we must wait
For I am here and not there with you
But do not come here where my sorrow engulfs all that surrounds me
Let me come to you, where your love gives off a soft glow of warmth
Let me be there so you can liberate me of this depressing chill
Bring me into your calming embrace, and let us become one
