Buffeted By Currents

Ageless Beauty

Hiding away the scars of time
Attempting to contain them
Like a bottle on the sea
Cast aside long ago

Desires, passions and love
Locked away in a bottle
Thrown to the waves
Never wanting to return

Rocked in storms passing
Buffeted by currents
Sea spray blurs the way
Taken to climes unknown

Hidden from view and self
Cracks appear in the amour
Desires and passions seep out
Too strong to be contained for long

Wrinkled by time and pain
Ageless beauty unmarred
The beauty within escapes
Bursting forth with radiance

Inner self on display
Blossoms and grows
Confidence and strength
Acceptance of self

Nurtured and cared for
Caressed and longed for
Through gentle touch
Of mind and body

Lessons from time and pain
Gained through strife and sadness
Deepen understanding and caring
Opening your heart for greater joy

Smashing your stoppered prison
Shards of life scatter and roam
Passion and desire free to explore
Learning the art of love again

Now naked and exposed
Enveloped in strong arms
A bulwark against the waves
Sheltering you from the storms
