You are the sound of my
Heartbeat, the taste of
Frosty air in winter. You
Are the satisfying crunch
Of fallen leaves crushed
Beneath reckless feet.
The glow of an
Untouched blanket of
Pure snow, light in the
early morning; or the
Sound of a camera shutter
Capturing a moment
Lost in time.
You’re the spark of
Lighting, unstoppable
Waves in a storm.
You start fires in me
So dangerous but
So inviting. You
Are a hurricane,
But you are a butterfly.
Your wings: soft and gentle.
But you can cause
And earthquake
In the blink of an eye.
You thought I stopped talking to you because I got bored. However, you’ve got it all wrong. I’m in love with you so much. I love you and it’s killing me because you won’t ever feel the same way. You look at me but you do not see me. Not with stars in your eyes or with a sense of awe. Not with love. So I’m sorry it seemed like I disappeared. For a while I was selfish and wanted to still keep you in my life. It didn’t work out like that. I realized that it didn’t matter if I left or if I stayed, because it would all hurt the same.
