Sometimes I need shelter
From my own mind
There will be times
When its you I find
And I give in
To the knowledge gained
Too late sometimes
But Iím somehow saved

Always, you make me strong
In your arms where I belong

I cannot put it into words
Or write it down
No matter how holy
Or upon sacred ground
And I may sin
Just to save face
While needing more than enough
From your little ways

Where time doesnít last too long
In your arms where I belong

Tonight Iím in your hands
Donít let me go
You have a hold on me
And with that, control
Here in the dark
I see all I need
By the light you give off
By the hand you lead

Take me between right and wrong
In your arms where I belong

imagine needing shelter from the mind
that writes like this...I cant.
this is so well written with your
trademark quality...
depth and intensity of emotion.
it is what draws me to your work...
it has from my first read...
very cool poem jer,
your jm

 Is it too much to find an answer,
Is it too much to hold you close.
Is it too much to find a reason,
Is it too much to free my soul --
From self control ...
And I know you're always waiting for me ...
You take me far away,
And I know you're holding me ...
And it's better now ...

Great poem as always, my fellow romantic. . . don't we all just need to be in someone's arms?

Excellent. . .
