breathing heart

Updated on July 10, 2012

welcome to my heart you said

as you laid your head on my lap

and it was then that i fell.

not that i first fell for you

but that was the moment that i fell ever so deeper into you

it was beyond lust

and way past love

it was then that i began to protect you

care for you

wish that i could kiss you

and suck all the bad stuff

from your mouth

take it on myself

its one thing to love someone

not be able to get enough of them

but when you feel for them

as you would feel for your child

never want evil to have touched the ground they stand on

well that's something different entirely

its whats brought down kingdoms

its whats saved countless lives from the danger

the sheer danger

of being alone

are you saved? a roadside sign begged the question

and my heart answered yes

because my salvation

lies not in a thousand countless gods

or faiths that never give back

my salvation lies

in the eyes of a man

who once laid his head on my lap

and felt so at ease

that his lids were finally able to soften

and this sleepless man began to dream

dream with eyes wide open

about the life he wanted

with me.

every little step we take

be it two steps forward

or a hundred steps back

never fall us short of where we want to be

elbow to elbow

my whole life melted away that night

and my fingers in his hair

brushed away every single doubt.

you know who you are.

damn... i love you.

you make me shake

and you make me scream with everything that i am

for a second try

at this chesterfield called life.
