Come, Be My Wave

photo by Toni Frissell 

Today I feel the first glimpse of love
Of butterflies and chill down my spine
Looking at you my heart flutters
In that one instant, I made you mine

I look at you from a distance
Your chiseled face and that gorgeous bod
I feel a mixture of passion, love and lust
Oh dear Adonis, my Greek Lord

Those green eyes speak to me
Captivating me to my bone
If loving you would be a sin
Then this sin I wouldn't atone

I see the mischief in your smile
My heart beats now form a chime
I am not letting go off this moment
Who knows if there would be a next time

I know that you are nothing like me
Yet the attraction I cannot hold back
I am incomplete in my own way
You are all the things that I lack

I am sure that this will work well
Before I have never felt like this
Somewhere deep down within me I know
Being in your arms would feel like bliss

Be the silver voice to my golden silence
Every boundary let us now shatter
Let us be the perfect yin and yang
You the screaming wave, to my still water

P.S: I suddenly had this crazy idea about associating the five elements of nature - fire, water, earth, air and sky to human emotions and love. And in the form of poetry. I wrote about fire here. This one is the second in the series, water.
