Silly Heart

silly heart

We walk side by side,
Our fingers tangled, hands held tight.
My smile touches my ears,
Making my skin tingle.
For a second you look at me,
And I can see the corners of your eyes crinkle.
We talk, we smile, we laugh, we walk.
But deep down, all I hear is the hammering of my heart.
Ever since we crossed paths,
Your smile had made my world stop, left me out of breath.
With patience, you carved your way through the walls
That covered my heart and its unkept halls.
With light you filled me again,
The idea of love you made me entertain.
Then, it just happened.
Like magic, in the webs of love we were both trapped.
… And we couldn’t get out.
But now, after all this time without you, I can feel it once more:
The butterflies in my stomach as you get closer and I focus on your orbs.
Orbs that hold a love, a passion, a fire just behind their doors.
My cool cheeks burn as your hands set them ablaze.
Your eyes focus on my aching lips,
My eyes decide it’s time to close and go for a trip.
Your breath trickles my skin,
Leaving indecipherable patterns in its wake.
Our hearts batter, we inch closer.
My hands slide to your neck, our bodies slowly enveloping one another.
Our breaths dance together, the moment is near.
Our lips are a hair away, and as we move to make them seal…
My eyes open wide awake, I fear.
I sit and scan my room in terror,
But then I realize where lies my error:
Next to your departure, I lay in my bed.
Even after such a long time being distant, this love from me has not fled.
Our kiss I can feel, seared on my lips.
My heart flutters in pain once again on its own debris.
My tears never seem to end
In their futile attempt to heal this ever-bleeding grief.
Your love is with me no more.
The void of your absence in my bones is keen.
It will never be more than a dream.
Silly heart. Silly me.

    I can’t believe that my “work” still has the privilege of having a space in this website. Thank you so so much. My wish is for everyone to enjoy the little scraps of sanity I get 😛

        I assure you, Ellie. If you were here, I’d leave you cheerless from so much squeezing :-*
