now it’s hard to wake up and face myself
never thought I’d never need to retrace myself
there’s nothing I can do to erase myself
from the feeling of your light after settling for settling for dim
from the feeling of our flight after struggling to swim
from the taste of wanting you and the rush of giving in
from the forces of nature that demand I touch your skin
you can’t put out a fire when your intention is to stoke it
certain pain in every flame the moment that we spoke it
but we greet the heat each time we meet
like a favorite record on repeat
a bond so beautiful, we broke it
sent pieces flying everywhere
it takes a break to make repair
you play for keeps, I don’t know how to share
I dove deep, you pulled me up for air
and I’m breathing like I’ve just been born
lungs so full and heart so torn
the smell of the flower is worth every thorn
I celebrate you – sound the horns!
shout quietly from rooftops in my mind
I’ve found the one I’ve been trying to find!
her eyes, I swear, they stop all time
her existence proves the theory of the Divine.
there she is. there is a God. see?
there she is. my sweet, sweet Audrie.
