A Dream of You

I stand by the window
Watching the night creep in,
And the distant sounds
Of a bustling city grow
Louder as the stars begin
To shine.

A dream of you,
Still lingers in my mind.

A dream of the stars
Lifting me up
And bringing me to you.

The tears begin to fall
Lazily from my eyes
And I remember your
Kiss on my cheek there,

How I wish that I could
Cut these red ties that
Bind us.
The ones that keep me
Cemented into place.

But instead,
I stand here,
Aiming my arrow
For the moon
Silently asking that you
Stay with me.

Be with me,
Like we once were,
In the tranquil peace
Of midnight.

Hold me,
Like some small mercy,
When my nightmares
Overwhelm me.

Hurt me,
If you love me,
Give me a taste of your
Sweet poison.

If you and I were meant to be,
Not even the inviting arms
Of Thanatos,
Could tear us apart.

My love,
My demon,
My night.

If I could give you the universe,
I would.

All I have,
Is the beat of a heart;
One that sings for you.

All I have,
Is the shell of a heart;
One that can only be filled
By you.

I've always had a passion for writing. In this crazy world that we live in, I find my solace in made up words and make believe stories. Let's escape into the void and forget about it all just for a moment or two.
