You smile at me and my stomach is in my throat; my heart is too, just wondering if you can see right through me. I’ll laugh at your jokes, and bite my lip to bite back the “I love you” that threatens to burst from my lungs.
Memories like a movie, running circles in my mind. You were my world and for one moment in time, I was your sun. But the sun sets eventually, and like daylight, we faded into darkness.
You don’t know you do it, do you? You don’t realize that every smile, every touch, every time you say my name is one more moment I never want to let go of. You don’t know that it takes every thing in me not to let it slip.
I’m searching so desperately for something that isn’t there any longer. I’ve been turning over stones and hoping that one day, you’ll appear right where I left you, but you never do.
