Sky

Did you ever look,

Did you ever see that one person?

And the subtle way that they do these things and it hurts so much?

So much like choking down the embers of a great blaze.

It's that moment when your eyes seem to spread aspersions,

And to scream confessions at the insipid sky parting clouds...

You let this one person come down at the most perfect moment.

And it breaks my heart, to know,

The only reason you are here now

Is a reminder of what I'll never have…

Standing so close knowing that it kills me to breathe you in.
