Long nights, your touch keeps me awake
Long days, your voice echoes in my mind
Our words encompass my heart
Our late-night conversations tingle my skin.
Your fingertips brush against me in my dreams
A whisper just beyond my reach
Your name, the only one to grace over my lips
Your smile, the only one to bring me comfort.
Distance and circumstance separates our touch
Desire, memory, and hope brings us closer each day
To hold you once more keeps me behind you, safe
Tucked in your curves, your heat warming my soul.
I feel your tears run down my own cheeks
I feel your pain ache inside all the corners of my heart
I feel your laughter penetrate every cell in my body
I feel your embrace, quieting my inner shaking when you’re near.
My breath gently blows on the back of your neck
As I sigh deeply, emptying the remaining demons I hold inside
Embracing our union, holding you as tight as I can
Until all our broken pieces are put back together.
To enter our space, meeting each other in that secret place
Where other hearts have burned holes and made a mess
We can stand before each other naked and raw
Tracing the lines of the healed scars, kissing the open wounds
Don’t hold back an ounce of the pain that assaults you
Allow our meeting, born of the stars and forged through hellfires
To effortlessly purge our souls, clear our minds, erase all doubt
Allow our hearts to be free of the fears that bind us
Show me all the parts of you that you do not love
So I know where to begin.
