Favorite Quote:
If you drown, at least die knowing you were headed for the shore.
-Ray Bradbury

I'm hungry for your love,
My heart is a catastrophe.
Let me know what your are to me.
It's like you've swallowed my heart,
Have you consorted with the mole?
I am tired of waiting-
Let me know, let me know.
I'm the golden lighthouse,
You're the darkened shore,
Metaphors I could give you more.
So many things of which I could give you more.
I love you like I've never loved before:
My heart can't beat without your embrace,
My eyes are blind without seeing your face.
Tell me the time, tell me the place.
Tell me where to go, what to do;
I am yours, I am you!
I'm the golden lighthouse, you're the darkened shore.
There are so many things of which I could give you more.

If anybody's confused, Lines 4 and 5 are about a Cherokee legend.
