Bind not my heart
With chains of steel
Hold me with silken cobwebs
To make it real
Show me your love
In gentle ways
Prove your heart true
To keep me all your days
Push not your will
Upon my life
Instead gently lead
Your hand in mine
Draw me in
Bind me fast
Wrapped in an eternal bondage
Of a love that will last

Lovely poem *8)
It reminds me of a proverb type thingy someone once told me... you know the kind of thing, like hmmm "Confucious say man with grass growing out of ears shouldn't go to sleep near lawnmower."

Only, this one actually makes sense to me now. Here it is, as it was told to me:

Love is like a butterfly, sitting in the palm of your hand. If you try to hold on to the butterfly too tightly, you'll crush it and it will be gone forever. If you lay your hand open and flat, if the butterfly wants to, it can fly, but if it is truly yours it will always fly back on its own.

Hope that reply makes some sense *8)
Love, Eric

Wow, wonderful! Reminds me of my favorite poem of all times.

The Falcon to the Falconer ~Jonathan Steffen

Unleash me from your hand
And I will lance the light for you
I'll cut a swordblade on the wind
And pennant it with flight for you
To signal I am yours
If you will free me to be true to you

Unleash me from your hand
And I will mock the sky for you
I'll pull the anger from the air
And make the breezes sigh for you
To show you that I'm yours
If you will free me to be true to you

Unleash me from your hand
And I will jewel it bright for you
I'll hunt the treasures of the wind
And pluck them into sight for you
To show that I am yours
If you will free me to be true to you

O, cast me from your hand
That I may show my love for you
And throw me to the wind
That I may know my need for you
All darkness on your hand
I'm hooded, pinned and held by you
O, give me back my wings
That they may bring me back to you

What can I say that hasn't already been said? I love this one!

Live intensely and am fed by life,

I like the way this flows from one tied up end to the other... not to mention that this describes precisely the way i'd like to be tied down...well-written...
