Am I looking for you?
Over the land that bears cold stones
None turn to reveal such a world
As the one you kissed me into

And the heart, it does seem drawn to something new.

But am I looking for you?
Because when I ripped and bludgeoned my way out of your stomach
I was thinking how my back was pulled tight as a board
I felt too desperate and clingy
To match your naturally occurring bravado
And how I snap under pressure...

Now you're gone and out of view.

The way your thin hands touched my face
Cuddling in the winter time
Drinking wine
The way you'd say like ya do
Everything we did leaves me wondering
As I look for something new...

Am I just looking for you?
