In sorrow's end,
Where lovers meet,
Where death will call,
And mother's weep,

A fitting end,
To harrowed tales,
When lovers fall,
Emotion fails,

A dying kiss,
A lovesick heart,
And then we know,
We're worlds apart.
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!
Don't forget to tell someone you love them.

are my salvation


save me

I live without you
but it feels lacking and lonely
how did I do this before?
I want to breathe your air
I want to fall into your arms
and feel your lips against me
I want to feel your love and know its true
I want you
I want all of you

without you
it's cold and it's dark and I can't get away from myself
I want to be with you
every hour of every day
I want you
I miss you

I miss you so much it hurts me
it hurts me
it hurts me so much I don't know how I get through it
I don't know how I make it to sunset without falling apart

you kept me together
you held me together
you made me want to stay that way
you changed everything
I gave you everything

I poured my heart and soul into loving you
you're gone now
and I don't know how to get it back

where am I without you?
I am lost, adrift out at sea
I can save myself
I know I can
but the wound you left feels like a bullet
shot through my heart
and all I have are bandaids to patch it together

I have to live without you
I have to live with missing you
one day this will be over
one day I'll stop feeling the ghost of your touch
one day I'll erase your smile
your eyes
your voice
from the workings of my soul

and I will learn to breathe again
and I will learn to save myself
and be my own salvation

love me
thrill me
kiss me
**** me

wrap those arms around me
and tell me i'm yours

keep me close
close to you and close to your heart
warm me with sweet kisses trailing down my spine

tell me you love me
but show me too

laugh with me
play with me
be with me

whisper to me in the darkest hours
find your way to me down the fading path
we'll be together, darling
we'll hold each other up, always

i'll be yours if you'll be mine
we'll tangle ourselves up in these hearts
until the knots are too much
and it'll tear us apart to break free

the leaving would ruin us
ruin me
to thrash and struggle to walk away
would be apocalyptic

but don't think of that now
i know nothing lasts forever
but our love will blossom and grow
within this fleeting gasp of eternity

This weight
on my chest
slipping into my core
and pooling there
eating away at everything else
and leaving only this hollowness
I am empty, I say
I am hollow and cold, I say
fill me, warm me, fix me
But you don’t need fixing, they say
You don’t need anyone but yourself, they say
I know I know I know
what do I do with this heavy hollow feeling?
it drags me down like an anchor into the dark depths
I want to laugh and dance and go wild
I want to breathe in life
and exhale everything else
I want to be held, to be touched – anything please
I want to talk to kiss to love – something please
I want meaning
burning desire
but more than anything
I want calm, quiet, perfect happiness  
I want love
I want to be known

I want a love that devours me
not in one big bite
with a snap of sharp, hungry teeth
but piece by piece
nibbling around the hard edges until it meets the soft and chewy center
until it tastes the very core of me
the heart – my heart
I want a love that devours me
not all at once
but slowly – slowly now
so slowly I don’t even notice until that last crumb dissolves
I want a love that consumes me
I want a love that makes my pulse go wild and steals the breath from my lungs
I want a love that makes me smile at the thought
a love that threads itself through dreams
that holds me close and keeps me warm through the coldest nights
I want a love that’s all mine
I want love that envelops me in its tender embrace
and drowns me in the weight of this new
