316 All [22 June 2000]

I’ve found within my heart
unspoken emotions that drift towards eternity.
I cannot breathe without you near,
I cannot see without your eyes.
I have been bound to you
by unknown bonds that threaten
to hold on until time is no more.
It is a trap I cannot escape.
It is a world I wish not to.
It seems like a dream,
but everyday proves me wrong
in the essence that you sleep beside me.
You live and breathe near me,
seeking me like I am the thing you desire.
How came I to be here
when all I deserve is so much less?
I will hold on to this good thing that I am blessed with
until the sun dies in its sapphire sky,
until this earth turns to dust.
I will die for you.
I will perish in battle for your love.
Leave me not for I fear
I will crumble without your love to keep me whole.
Let me crash into you.
Let me plunge into all that is you.
