Introduction:

“It happened one day, about noon, going towards my boat; I was exceedingly surprised with the print of a man's naked foot on the shore, which was very plain to be seen in the sand. I stood like one thunderstruck, or as if I had seen an apparition”. Daniel Defoe/Robinson Crusoe.

Thunderstruck

Thunderstruck; it’s my impression,
feelings exposed yet unprotected,
with a fog of confusion amid dreamy illusion,
a magical yet fascinating intrusion.

And we dance…
to music beating between stars and time,
in the light of a moon where waves collide,
and if I were to die tomorrow and you today,
we’ll dance these moments in our clubfoot sway.

Even though we waited...
a thousand years, to find only a few more,
it’s your heart releasing a timid soul; letting love soar,
gaining strength, in moments, from an ill gotten sword,
and we dance to torn hearts; unlocking that door.

I have selected Christina Perri's "A Thousand Years" (2) to accompany this poem. and have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.


"A Thousand Years"(3)
Heart beats fast
Colours and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall?
But watching you stand alone,
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow.

One step closer

[Chorus:]
I have died every day waiting for you
Darling, don't be afraid.
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What's standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this

One step closer

[Chorus:]
I have died every day waiting for you
Darling, don't be afraid.
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

One step closer
One step closer

[Chorus:]
I have died every day waiting for you
Darling, don't be afraid.
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years

I'll love you for a thousand more

Love and Peace ~D

Vous êtes mon âme ma chérie...xxx
