sleep we shared

the sleep we shared

kept me still you

the nights that surrounded us

so plain in view

but i saw

only you.

your breath

your light

every movement

of your skin

crept over me

and over me

and lulled me deeply into you.

as i go on now

alone in the night

i dream of you

of the simple things

your scent

the force of your energy in the room

the wake of your slumber




without you

there just is no rest

the days run into one another

the nights longer


ever more void of you

the urge to touch you

is amazing

and incredible

just how strong

that urge really is

i toss and i turn

maybe hoping that when i roll over

you would be there

oh if i could invoke you

i scream to feel you

and my tears roll down

and my soul is wet

and my muscles ache

to feel you

to be held by you

to feel the warmth of your breath

the heat of your chest

the girth of your biceps

the strength of your embrace

the night

just isn't the night

because you are the night

for me.

The pain i feel when im not with them...

My goddess of pain I read your words and taste the tears on my lips. So sad, so amazing, so beautiful. I write better when I am hurting. Jaded, your heart is absolutely gorgeous. Voted up

its agonizing. its almost impossible to write. ive passed the point where the saddness feeds the pen, and have gone straight through into being unable to write because every time i attempt it, there are no thoughts, no words, just these fucking feelings. i feel like im in a cell.
