the pulling

Stepping stones

of memories

lead me back to you

and every time

i wonder

how i got so far away.

the ghost of you consumes me

and haunts me on the hour

driving me to extreme behavior

spraying your cologne

wearing your shirts

putting the arms of your sweatshirt around my waist

so i can feel like your holding me.

these feelings for you

are something i thought

was lost somewhere inside of me.

but just like always

you brought the yearning back to the surface

I'm like a slave to you

bending to you

when you show your love for me

when you make me feel it.

i miss you.

There is something about the feeling of closeness felt within the very essence left behind. Some embrace it, some delete it, some ignore it. In your pain there is a light seen in your eyes. Intoxicating love Steph, Jaded Love in light and us, blessed be.
