I could sit on the balcony of music notes

And watch the beat carry my spirit

Leaving me still and unwavering

Your taste still lingers on my tongue

Dog tags dangled off your chest

As you taunted your weight above me

Two pieces of metal on a balled chain

Mapped my future

Gave "I'm yours" a different air

A different country

A different culture

A different career

And between those two metal pieces,

My heart exists freely

Invisibly

Tangibly

And I wonder what I will morph into without you
