With Abandon (

Have you ever known the wind to caution
Have you ever heard of the tide to pause
Fate tends to bring two hearts at random
And love is still love with abandon

I do not know the road I travel
Faces fade in the blur of a dream
But in the shadows is an image
More vivid then I’ve ever seen

I look into a future wanting
I see into the soul of me
You haunt my waking moments
And dance in my promised dreams

I protect my heart with cold decision
Not from you I wouldn’t dream
But still my guard and sword has risen
An automatic reflex in me

Up ahead I see a tunnel
With neon words that riddle me
Here I go into darkened chasm
For the answers I can not see…..

And knowledge pauses for cautioned breezes
With the warning of tidal flows
But, I run and chase with wild passion
And love the love I give with abandon.

"You haunt my waking moments
And dance in my promised dreams"

Good line tucked within some good poetry.
