MYSTERY

This morning you were silent
Your thoughts kept just for you
I watched you from a distance
The safest point of view
You didn’t give a smile
Gave no acknowledgement at all
I wondered what was going on
Behind that well-built wall.
 
You’re a mystery to me
Like my attraction to the sea
my longing for the water
And my desire to be free
You are my silent muse
I don’t know what I am to you
A lover or a daughter
A mistress or a fool.
 
Why do I keep trying
After months of failed attempts
To pull you in closer
To know your true intent.
I tell myself its over
Its time to let you go
And just as I pull anchor
You let your feelings show.
 
You’re a mystery to me
Like my attraction to the sea
my longing for the water
And my desire to be free
You are my silent muse
I don’t know what I am to you
A lover or a daughter
A mistress or a fool.
 
At times you share your thoughts
Little pieces of your soul
It leaves me wanting more
Of the parts you never show.
I try to swim in deeper
To see what’s in your heart
But you leave me standing on the shore
You have right from the start.
 
I need you like a river needs the rain
I want you more than words could ever say
Please just open up and let me in
I may never be this brave again.
 
You’re a mystery to me
Like my attraction to the sea
And my longing for the water
And my desire to be free
You are my silent muse
I don’t know what I am to you
A lover or a daughter
A mistress or a fool.
