This is a peice I wrote based on the story of Samson and Delilah in the Christian Bible. Often we read about the moral of Samson losing his strength for love yet I have attempted to write about Delilahs own blindness in wanting the devoted mateship of a man that deserved better.
The hidden heart of Delilah.
Though the sands of time bought no comfort,
Your eyes brought a mirror of wanting in which I longed to escape
Escape the mediocrity of the world
I yearned to hide in their comfort
A million wings of assurance
That could not fly to capture my own
And I lay drowning then
For your own misleading comfort to rescue,
Not mine to slip and fall.
A million wings to catch me
Caught up in the darkness of broken dreams
Like moth to a flame
Wishing for the day light to bide
On a dream I wish to capture
Falling into the shadow,
Yearning for a hidden fulfilment;
Stolen with the mornings rise.
