I’ll explain later. Just remember Easter Saturday 2017.
They’ll call you my mistress and tease I’m your slave
But truly I relish every moment with you
From making sure you’re okay to
Even going as far as to watch you glow, see your face light up when you listen or speak
A mix of ferocity and meekness all combined.
It’s that strength that enthralls always
The fact that even on the brave and boisterous face you show the world,
I have the honour of seeing you in the moments when you’re meek
You take the lead sometimes, and I dance to the tune
Like jujitsu, we feed off of each other and pull back and forth
Eventually having enough force to topple the world
Like jujitsu, when together
My strength adds to yours
Yours adds to mine
Indomitable together but brave apart
I want to be brave with you, brash and reckless in a moment of madness
But know too well that even the combination of all the pagan pantheons would be defeated by us
Thor’s hammer would fail and Zeus’ shield would shatter
While the strength of the Titans and Golems fail
And Apophis, the bringer of Chaos, is tamed
And although I may be eloquent almost everywhere,
There are moments when alone with you, or my thoughts of you, even in public
I can’t communicate.
My words fail.
Even a pencil, a mic, a piano and guitar would fail to express what’s inside in a manner fully expressive
And I fumble my way through things, one word at a time, much to your knowing grinning
Or your exasperated sighs that occasionally come
But without those moments, John Legend would have never given us “All of Me.”
Nor Justin Timberlake “Mirror.”
They’ll call you my mistress and tease I’m your slave,
But what they may not see
If they don’t look between the lines
Is that I’ve met my match in you
And I’m comfortable with it.
