I wrote the following freestyle poem set to the song ‘marry me’ below. As some of you know, this is my very favorite epic love symphony. I have composed more than one poem from it. I cherish this song deeply as it speaks to me and plays on the strings of my heart.
So without further delay, my dramatic poem, set to sounds of the brilliant composer Hans Zimmer. Enjoy.
What must I do to bring back your smile?
What must I say to prove my love?
I can no longer sit and watch your tears
while my love wastes away.
I pray to the heavens for only God knows
how very tender my heart is turned to you
and only he sees
how I have struggled and fought for you in vain.
I would go anywhere, do anything
to see the shining glow in your eyes
Climb the perilous mountains, swim the treacherous seas….
you know I would give my soul to redeem you
from your present nightmare.
Feel this heart that pounds in my chest for you
receive love’s passion that burns inside and do not let it die
make it your shelter from the storm and heal your wounds
it is forever there to make you whole.
I know not what tomorrow holds
but this one thing I do
I’ll continue to rage war with the savage hoards
I will rescue you, back to me, from the one who stole you.
But the shadows cast across your face
sow fear within my mind
oh what a wretched kind of battle
fighting with what I cannot see.
I cannot lose you to the dark
I would not make it through
my pleas for you to hear my cries
are falling on deaf ears that once were so alive.
Tears fall from the wellspring that has become my eyes
they stain my hot, swollen cheeks
splashing, falling, a stream of grief
down to the barren earth below.
NO! I will not be tempted, cast away into despair
will not my tears be for naught only to be
swallowed up by evil’s sinister laugh.
On the contrary, my love….
each and every one shall be avenged.
And also yours.
If it means I fight until my hairs are all gray
with or without you, until the end…
they will not take you quietly into the night
not without my wrath to accompany their wretched deeds.
But if it must be so, then to the grave I go
with you still by my side, buried with our plundered love…
for I will never leave you alone in your nightmarish plight.
When that day comes may the gates of heaven welcome our weary souls
and usher us into the healing waters of life
to rebirth and restore to us in another world
what was once enjoyed and stolen too soon in this one.
But until then, hell will have to deal with me
and contend with my might, if indeed they aim to claim you.
We will go out in a blaze of glory…..
if it must be so, so be it.
Your face still frozen and heart so ill
I take your loving hands
remembering the way they would touch me
their warmth and desire winding it’s way to my inmost places.
Anger boils beneath the surface
my will and strength ignited anew
hell will not go unpunished
for this curse they have brought upon you.
I will avenge you, my love and redeem you from the pits
before God and man, this to you I truly vow….
I’ll journey far and smite them with a single glance
from my vengeful and ever watchful eyes.
