Joy sat mesmerized,
On the banks of the rolling River You;
On a moonlit night, hypnotized,
Mindless and entranced, by the sparkling,
Rushing waters of You!
Tempted in for a midnight swim;
Joy enveloped in the cool,
Soothing waters of You!
Joy drifted effortlessly,
Happily submerged by the amorous River You;
With long deep sighs, restlessly, and comfortlessly,
Joy vowed love-struck promises,
Completely taken in by handsome River You!
“Whatever you want, whatever you need
I’ll do! I’ll give You everything
And live my life for only, You!”
Joy was swept away!
Very far away,
In the all consuming waters of the River You;
Devoured by You, Joy faded to pale grey,
Awash in the tantalizing River You!
Joy’s true purpose lost,
Joy paid the high cost,
Identity; diluted then dissolved,
In the unsatisfiable waters of River You.
