Sometimes my Mind Wanders

by Evanescent Moon   Sep 22, 2017

Sometimes my mind wanders.

Sometimes it roams to dark places,
Places where my insecurities saunter
Forward to claim my happiness.
My thoughts fade into a dark storm
Where I fear you'll stray from our marriage
And fears of infidelity take form
For I can't bear to share us.

It wanders to places where my heart breaks,
Wondering if you still love me the same way,
Urging me to do all it takes
To keep your heart from pushing me, us, this, away.

Sometimes my mind wanders.

Sometimes it roams to beautiful places
Where I am wrapped effortlessly in your love
As my once belittled heart flourishes and frolicks in your embraces.
It mosies to a place where I can find someone I can be proud of,
Where my mind sings in pleasure simply because you smiled.

In this grove of wonder my mind is allowed a fantasy
Where I see you, sitting in a corner, rocking our child into a slumber
And I can almost hear you humming absently;
In that moment, I cannot picture myself with any other.

Sometimes my mind wanders,
It wanders to places of dark and light,
But, my love, you bring it to places so beautiful
And with that, I owe you my life.

    This is brilliant. The problem with love is that once you have it, you worry you'll lose it, but deep love can overcome the insecurities and you've captured that perfectly. :-)
