Monday Musings: Part Two – What Lies Below

Monday Musings: Part Two – What Lies Below

Part Two – What Lies Below

You’ve gone away for awhile;

I know you’ll be back.

I just have to wait;

I miss you so bad.

 

I wonder how your life is;

Do you have someone?

The thought makes my heart ache;

To you, am I special?

 

My heart almost stops;

My thoughts halt.

Did I just think that?

This is your fault.

 

And that makes me smile;

When did I last feel this way?

Before he left me;

You left me here to stay.

 

I think I’m falling again;

Last time I was afraid.

I was afraid to let go;

Am I afraid of what lies below?

 

I was afraid to fall too far;

That things would become blurry.

I can see fine now;

Will you catch me?

Monday Musings: Interruption – Reprieve

Interruption – Reprieve

Tears streaking my face,

I look at you.

Why are you so kind?

I wish I knew.

 

Wiping away my tears,

Please don’t…

You smile at me.

I can’t… Or I won’t.

 

You pull me close.

I think I can breathe.

Just hold me, for tonight?

You are such a relief.

 

You don’t let go.

I can’t stop crying.

When was I held like this last?

I thought the world was ending.

 

Maybe it’s just the beginning.
