It Could Not Be Detained

 
I am in bed
but I’m flying,
I am laughing
and I’m crying
 
 
My heart is soaring
and affection is pouring,
and the pounding inside
me is roaring.
 
 
I am sitting upon the moon
and gazing upon the stars.
I am floating among the clouds
and succumbing at all hours.
 
 
I am freshly revived
I’ve rode away on a stallion.
I’ve been to the ends of the earth
only to come back to this again.
 
 
I’ve fought seas and storms
and hungered for all things,
and never knew how much
life, happiness brings.
 
 
Oh the words finally spilled
there upon the scales,
To be measured and weighed;
To try not to fail.
 
 
And the release, so great,
The breaking of a dam,
Because it’s let go of what I’ll be
and all I ever am.
 
Oh what, what does one do
When they’ve had the courage to
Look into the eyes,
of one quite surprised,
and finally admit and say,
“I love you?”
