Warm Embrace

dscn7564_just_us_alone_master

Bring me pieces of what
Are your broken heart
And watch me fall in love
With every piece
For definitions are often revised,
I’ll redefine your definition of love

I see the hurt you hide
Abaft your beautiful smile;
For smiles with a certain gaiety
Spring from a heart that knows misery
I know because I do the same,
My smiles are the ashes of charred love

So pour yourself into me
That I might be the vial
In which you lose yourself
For my heart is built with
The foundations of understanding
And in my soul is a warm embrace.

– Smyekh David-West.
