as the stars shine out my window
i can only think of the glimmer in his eyes when we kissed for the first time,
before they became dry
and as the cold wind freezes me to the bones
gives me chills to the bones
i can only remember the way he would envelop me
protect me from the cold with his passionate grasp
when he was still warm...
before he became as cold as the December night that haunts my body.
and now as i light on fire with pain of his absence,
even my waterfall eyes can not salvage my wreckage
every time i think of when
he tightened his hold around me
and he said the three words i swore id never let myself believe.
and now as i try to hold on to him
its as if hes letting me slip away,
letting me wash away with the current
to "find other fish in the sea"
but see here
i don't want another fish i just
i just want him.
his touch is the only one that has ever kept me truly safe
and his voice is the only one i could hear over the voices in my mind
and just his being
just his existence
has a way of healing me.
he is my world
he is my sky and my sun and my ground he...
he says people are not medicine and that i cannot lean on him for recovery but
though he is not medication he is more like the sweet taste of wine
seeping into my bloodstream for temporary relief.
the only relief i could ever find.
as the end creeps so close it
sends electrical currents through my body every time i look forward
i just wish he was warm
like he once was.
