I am bound up inside
A red string, constricting
Keeping my heart tongue-tied

On the edge of extremes
Babbling could-be's between
Contemplative silence in daydreams

A hand, a ghostly touch
Bringing me far from reality
I had not thought I could care so much

A separation imminent
Heartstrings taut and tensed
Fear at the hands of distances

Landscapes stretch out
Lengths I cannot fathom
Depths of water bodies and doubt

A voice, a reminder
Keeping me wrapped up
Wishing life could be kinder

I will just breathe
Wait for our defining moment
One day you will stay with me
