I only exist
because you loved me.
I wandered,
alone amongst the crowd,
and you saw me.
Your voice
rose above the din,
floated high,
and sunk its teeth
into my soul.
I live
because you found me,
your strong arms
carrying me through
a desert of darkness
and distance.
And I am lost again
because your love
walked away
on the sneaky legs
of time.
A hole is left
and a charred body
that used to belong
to me.
I used to live
because you loved me.
Now I exist
only for the hopes
of your hand in mine.
