Surrender My Heart (a poem), 10/03/12 Gratiana Lovelace
My heart yearns for you,
Your voice, your gaze, your touch.
Yet, your presence unnerves me.
Even now, I hesitate.
To declare this love I have
Risks rejection–or worse, indifference
For my beloved is unaware
Of the power wielded over me.
How my heart has been captured.
I am your prisoner, unable to flee,
Not wanting my freedom,
Preferring the chains of love that bind me.
Until you came into my life,
I did not think me capable of love.
I am still suspect of its truth.
Yet, my agony is the proof
Of a love so deep, and unreturned,
It wounds my very soul.
But I love you still.
You cannot take it from me.
Though, you will not give it to me.
But it is mine to give to you.
And so, I willingly surrender my heart.
It is yours forever.
