You hold me like you think i will leave
Like the constant contact we keep
Is the anchor holding you to me

The rocks can not stop
The waves from meeting the shore
And distance can not keep
My heart from beating for yours
shiv Jan 2020
My heart breaks with disuse
and every night I cry myself dry
hoping that I can be another one
of those things you left behind
and returned to love again

My heart breaks with disuse  
and I wonder if you can find it in you
to love me again
because god knows
I can't find it in me to stop loving you
shiv Dec 2019
And every day I wake
And every day I sleep
And everyday I wish for you
To love me again
shiv Dec 2019
And how long is forever
And how long is an eternity.

when you said happily ever after
I guess you forget the never.
shiv Dec 2019
And i want to drown in something other than you
I want to meet god on her throne and not wish
I was anywhere else with you.

And i want to be someone else
Who does not dream of your love
And wake up crying with the bed cold.

and i would give anything
to spend a night in your arms
instead of a nightmare
shiv Dec 2019
i know i have only ever known flames
only ever the silence before
a lit match touches my exposed skin

and i know that you are every black ocean depth
but i would give anything, time and time again
to be washed out by you

i would give up an eternity
of euphoria red and orange
to know you long for me
the way the moon and sun
the way i do you
