you are the only exception

Leave me with some kind of proof it’s not a dream
     —Hayley Williams

what is love
but a mesmerizing image
shining from the waters
reaching out
in sound & taste
pulling you deep underneath
where it’s quiet & safe

what is love
but a shadow of a doubt
veiled in the scenery
patiently waiting
a surprise embrace
sweeping you off your feet
& into the unknown

what is love
but a deep-rooted memory
residing in your heart
overly protective
when you are down
rising above the surface
at a moment’s notice
