~ I AM I

    I am I, who long to be
    Lost as a light is lost in light
    You love me, and I find you still
    A spirit beautiful and bright,

    I am not yours, not lost in you,
    Not lost, although I long to be
    Vanished as a sprite in a tale,
    Missing as an albatross at sea.

    Oh please!
    Plunge me deep in love
    Put out my senses,
    Leave me deaf and blind,
    Swept by a tempest
    I cannot find.
