Another night without a moments sleep.
My brain is lethargic
But my heart feels so alive
Remembering how just hours before,
Your face so near to mine,
Your breathing lightly on my cheek
Your smile as you whisper how much you love me
Your eyes pulling out my deepest secrets
Unwrapping my heart that was once so tightly
Surrounded by barbed wire
It's all so vivid.
So clear.
As if you're here with me now
Right this moment.
My senses play tricks on me
Taunting me with your scent
Your face
Your laugh
Your lips
Do you see me there?
On the edge of your bed?
In the back of your eyelids?
Without you here I am nothing more than an
Empty shell.
(Hm. Needs work? Suggestions?)
