Take you straight,
Even when we’re on the rocks.
I need to live in a place
Where everything around me
Is bigger than I am.
I can no longer take
Watching everything I set my eyes on
Shrink under my stare.
I crave things that no longer exist,
I long to return to cities I’ve never been.
Wanting to feel the comfort of feelings that never were -
Get lost in the romanticism that was almost;
Of adoration on the verge of entry,
With the ardor of someone who’s never been scarred.
Living in a new skin, unblemished,
Existant in a new body,
Free of the flaws
I can almost smell your cologne.
You have yet to reach me,
But I’m surrounded by the aroma of you,
Wafting through the air, seducing my senses.
Lingering above me, as my head hits the pillow.
And distance didn’t make the heart grow fonder;
Because I was so fond when he was close.
Still somehow we found ourselves in a foreign place.
I’m in love with your ghost -
The only tangible extension of you.
It holds my hand when you’re too far to reach,
I feel it’s breath lingering in my hair as I sleep.
I get shivers as it’s fingertips sweep against my cheekbones,
Leaving trails of blush,
As I wake,
To curl into it’s invisible frame,
Feeling for the dips and curves I know aren’t there.
Coming up empty, only to be set at ease,
Once I remember to simply breathe.
In and out I drift off,
Back into my favorite dream,
The Ghost of You and Me.
