I wrote the following words while courting my ex-husband. This piece was written exactly 8 days before he proposed to me. LOL!
And It All Comes Back to You
November 11, 2010
My mind has been on a constant vacation
Time traveling and contemplation
Blank stares and meditation
And it all comes back to you.
I remember the first time I was infected with your existence
Your scent lingered for days and my soul was not resistant
The sound of your voice penetrated my dreams
As your face became omnipresent and it seemed
You were definitely the one.
I’ve tried to justify, even categorize
The blaze that’s ever present when I gaze in your eyes
But I’m over taken, mind & body shaken
Completely enthralled & it’s a feeling unmistaken
I’ve never ever known a heart beat as strong as
A high felt as long as
So remarkable that all along has
Been living inside my chest.
Growing rapidly without rest.
It’s like I’ve been in a battle with myself and can no longer contest
Deciding to finally, emotionally get out of this mess
And step into my blessing
Let go of the pain and start Wedding Dressing
Accept this newly found ever after that is destined to be happy
Continuously pinching myself because it’s hard to believe it’s happening
I don’t want anything other than
Your voice and the sounds of uttering
That soothes and chills; my heart’s fluttering
Caught up in you and I know there’s no other man.
You make me fly; You’ve caused wings to emerge
From my frivolous words
And I’ve taken flight, suddenly filled with urge
To soar across skies, God’s homo sapient bird
Baby I apologize
For ever letting anything negative rise
Or never saying how much I love your tries
And am grateful for confidence you possess and express in your stride
I find you quite sexy
And it’s my pleasure to admire your beauty for life if you’ll let me
Cause you see I’ve seen a lot and heard a lot of foolishness
That took captive of my heart and made me feel I shouldn’t be doing this
But it feels like, and it’s real like there’s nothing else left to do
Than to lay here in this bliss forever, and it all comes back to you.
I am Eryka
