Your eyes like oceans of dole
glimmer in the dim lights.
And your breathing,
light and broken,
hits my eardrums with such intensity.
And I feel your head
lay gently upon my shoulder
as you continue to lean on me in silence.
I cannot tell if this is perfect or broken,
yet something is pulling at my heart.
The pain of love for someone so defeated,
so beautiful in every way
caught in the binds of something fierce.
I can’t say I never expected this,
but something in this moment seems so surreal.
I was sure the other day
when you told me you loved me…
Well, I thought it was a lie.
But in this silence, in this moment,
I feel the faith you’ve put in me.
You’ve trusted me with the confined tales
that few have ever heard.
I think of all that’s happened
wondering when I’ll see your smile again.
That perfect smile that lights up the world…
I hope I’ll see it soon, my friend.
