You cast light into the uncharted lands,
The darkest spots among the shifting sands,
Of the deserts, to the deepest trenches,
In the oceans of my heart.

Nothing even dares to hide
From this magnificent light so deep inside;
It's drowned the very thirst it quenches
From the very start.

These cartographers dream of the discoveries you've made,
Their expeditions and journies but a silly masquerade
In comparison to the glory of roads that you've paved
Into the farthest reaches of my heart.

You sing to the muses that hold legends
Of the demons and gods my heart defends,
And weave glory into their every story
Of your majesty in me.

No citizen or king can dare deny
Flowers and trees have blossomed high;
My nature's reached its full glory
Through your purity in me.

So bring me that horizon's line;
We'll sail these ships over lands divine,
Every corner of the seven seas ,
Of the world within my heart.

These cartographers dream of the discoveries you've made,
Their expeditions and journies but a silly masquerade
In comparison to the glory of roads that you've paved
Into the farthest reaches of my heart.

Though we still have much to brave,
I dare say I'll continue to rave
Like a lunatic over the insanity you inspire in me~
You shed light on the lands my heart's cartographers only dare to dream of..

That's really lovely. It's a beautiful concept and well constructed. :)

I'd recommend you consider adding punctuation to the ends of the lines. I tripped up a couple of times because I wasn't sure where the sentences ended, or where to take a breath. That did undermine the flow a little bit :(
