Mightier than a Sword

Hello dear reader

It has been quite some time since I have written anything meaningful or worth publishing. I really have not been feeling it. My muse disappeared. I'm not bold enough to say it has returned, but I am really proud of this poem, and what it means to me. Please enjoy, and try figure out who (or what) I am writing to (or about).

My eyes fill
with tears of joy,
for I see you
for the first time
in a long time.

My heart beats
just a little faster,
knowing that I
am holding you
once again.

I don't want to
let go,
I pray my eyes
do not deceive.

A light caress,
my fingers find
inspiration, drawn
by the beauty of
this canvas before me.

My mind is alive,
I see your life's blood
swirling in patterns
I never knew

In a moment of
I feel your breath
on my soul.

We belong together.
I promise to never break
this embrace.

In the face of temptation,
I will reveal
that you truly are
than a sword.
