The solid breadth of you


The solid breadth of you
All encompassing

Enveloping me

My weary head

Against your steady heartbeat

I love you wholeheartedly

Desire you unashamedly

With terrible possesiveness

And fervent fervent fury




I love every star in your gentle sky

Every wave in your rolling seas

Every dream you dare

Every thought you hold

And words shaped upon your lips

Like countless kisses upon my own




I long to keep you

Like Dubai yearns for rain

A whispered prayer of mercy

A continued presence

A continued blessing




But the winds are blowing you away

And I'm the forlorn, the broken

Watching you drift into the unknown

Always drifting away. It sucks. Beautifully written.
