A Lover’s Mentality

If you knew the struggle
Of a changed soul
Like a piece of a puzzle
Stuck on feelings of old

A futile swim to shore
In a sea that expands
But a reason to fight, fueling my core
In search of a chance

But your light shines through it all
With hair like strands of golden silk
I climb, though I am bound to fall
My fall is hard yet you seek to bilk

I will find my path to you
This is clear to me
I will take root
To be your giving tree
