You spoke to my soul and I breathed in every word like it was oxygen that without it I would die. I drank you like you were the cure when maybe you were my poison. Try as I might to keep you out, you broke in to my heart and changed everything. I gave you the one thing I had that could destroy me. And you, my friend, are the person that can leave me broken. I know you feel it too. Silently aching for my touch, for my soul to again connect with yours as you pretend that you can live without us. I run away to my dreams for there is where we can be together.
Longing for her, every part of him desperately wanting to pull her closer as he continues to push her away in an effort to be a good man, he too runs to his dreams. Never able to fully give her up, his heart leads him to the place where they are to meet again. He opens his eyes in a world that houses every truth he can’t run from, to see her standing there illuminated by the stars they once stood under together. As hard as he tries, he can’t escape what he always knew. His need to be with her, to make her his and no one else’s, he is desperate to reach her. But she is slowly vanishing before his eyes. Her heart beat, that once matched his, grows softer as he watches his happiness slip away.
