how do i reopen
in my mind?
to utter words
to you now
a flame long
since blown out,
a flame that
in the heart
of a lost,
i am numb when i am without you;
trapped in a place where no emotion can reach.
i ache for your existence to coincide with mine;
for our souls to embrace so our bodies will follow.
i know i must leave you;
you can not grant all that i ask.
if only staying with you would give me all i needed.
you didn't hear it,
the sound of my soul gasping.
the soft release of anguish
that will never leave my mind.
it was as if you gave me a noise;
the sound of our memory.
the sun has slunk behind the horizon
while the moon has crawled into view.
the threads of exhaustion
have sewn themselves into
my mind, my body.
as i begin to slip away
i hear the jingle of your ringtone,
and i wonder why you're calling.
your soft words
whispered above melodies
floating their way to my ears
Time is not a concept
when I am wrapped up in you,
comfortably enclosed in your warmth;
my face buried in your chest,
the smell of sandalwood
creeping up my nostrils,
the music of your breathing
filling my ears.
we entwined like before;
like before was like always, with our
legs tangled together,
arms wrapped around one another
you leaned down and kissed me but
instead of the kiss traveling down
instead of fingers slipping underneath my shirt
somehow your lips found their way to my forehead
you pressed them against me
with a slow sensuality i had never felt before
in the untouched silence i heard you whisper
