I'm Terrified

Tue, 10/15/2013 - 14:25 -- Severia


Evermore my heart will beat in your hands,

Only your hands.

And I'm perched on the edge of the fear of you dropping it,

Letting it go and watching it fall and cease to beat,

And finally burst on the ground.

I'm terrified of the absence of your voice, 

Of the light leaving your eyes when you smile.

I'm terrified.
