Safe? marooned?

I have this uncertainty

whether or not

to drown

in the sea

of your love.

 

My heart

will not swim

in doubt

of what

lies beneath

its surface.

 

Leave me

like this

for now

on this

island

of indescision.

 

Here

I must bide

until the truth rises

and unifies.

my patience knows no bounds,my patience never loses,the needs of my soul won't allow it to.
