A girl with god

9956860115_3a19e04314_b

is an oasis in stormy
weather
hard to take your eyes off of, really
her body is a pirate's treasure
a song of songs
her eyes alone could lead the
way to peace
her voice is wind chimes
chasing away all apathy
her words purer than
any dreams i'll know
her love could light 
up the night
making a man better
than he deserves to be
she smiles, and doors
open to
          paradise
