He flips the switch
And light leaves the room
Heat has dissipated along with it.
It seems so cold.
He stands on one side of the room, by the lightswitch
And I on the other, with no windows
He takes one step
And without touching me,
He's a magician in that respect
Able to do so many things without physical contact
I see it coming but can't stop it
It frightens me
And I can't escape
I'm having a heart attack
Can't breathe anymore
If he wants to kill me, he should do it quickly.
Maybe, though, this feeling is not that
The emptiness starts to fade
As he draws nearer and nearer toward me
It's a similar sensation
And the stomach acid quenches itself
"You're so close…"
I haven't moved a step but
The distance between us starts to close
The emptiness is leaving now
My heart must be surrendering
And I think I have high blood pressure
It's harder to breathe now
With you so close
Though the heat of my body seems to have
Followed that which slipped out of the room.
My ivtal signs seem all gone
And as I feel a gentle touch
Everything seems to
I wonder mildly how it's possible
To feel like I'm dying and immortal at the same time
It's amazing to sense
The absence of the emptiness
Filling up the room
The sensation is terrifying
I'm frightened and i
Tremble with your touch
I wonder how I stayed alive if I
It's amazing how as we break apart,
You made the earth move somehow,
For though the light is still turned off,
The darkness fills the room,
Pushing Empty away.
You're a magician of sorts.
