in plain view

I've seen you anchor on stormy shores
I've seen your house upside down
I've seen your pain come in shit loads
but don't quit me now
I've seen you grow in a garden of fury
I've seen you shoot down your own vows
I've seen your heart bleed rivers
but don't quit me now

those life equations
had been unresolved
for so long
before they have been solved
then you became involved
and believed in me

stay the stubborn mule
in plain view
in spite of yesterday
and it's harbored crude
be the you I've always knew
and stand with me

Hathor4wine, I like the word choices used here to lure the otjer into sticking around. Clever and succinct. ginga

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
