I Love You
You don't know how much those three words mean to me
they cut deeper than any swords
etching your name in my blood
my DNA screaming for your touch
And so I try!
I try to shout,
"Where'd you go!"
but I fail
My lips sealed without yours to unlock them
And so I look for you with my hands,
my fingers searching and trying to feel
but they are frozen and numb without your embrace
my body slowly losing its heat without your body's warmth to replenish it
my lungs rapidly expanding and closing as they suffocate in panic
unable to inhale your scent,
and so the moments begin to slide by
announcing the obvious,
my eyes closing
your face becoming my world
as my eyelids engulf my vision
every inch of you burned behind them.
my consciousness of you begins to leave me.
everything we were, blirring past my mind
One... Last... Time...
As I say goodbye
But there is something wrong,
Death doesn't come
If my insides are on fire
twisting and squirming
thrashing about, looking for an escape
from this hell that is my agony!
Come, I say
Come for me!
Dam you death, where are you!
And there it is...
Not death, but what's keeping it at bay
There, you, are
What a fool I was
hiding in plain sight
the best hiding place,
with all the cracks it has endured
you hold it together,
even when you cause hundreds of more to appear
I guess Love is just equally
