Rock Lover

By Katie Joy

A man of strength, a man of rock
Muscles hard and skin smooth and thick
Steel arms push iron and muscles lock
Sturdy and stable a house of brick
My lover is strength in body and soft in heart
Contently enraged at the wrongful world
A rock and fortress of righteous pain torn apart
I see you determined and mission pearled
But the world’s imperfections will not cloud your vision
Soft at heart but stable as stone
Exercise a plan of iron and precision
Muscles pumping, sweat dripping, and pain to the bone
As life longs to be lived, I will be your lover
With our new life we have a new world to discover
