Alone, With You


it's not that I'm
afraid
of losing you
there is no reason to explain
unless you're crying,
and I'm alone
still
wouldn't matter
my truth is muted,
deleted from your songs

your sightlines are not shrinking
you just don't see me
unless
it serves you
being alone does not crowd my
thinking
its
being
alone with you

candles burning
vanilla flames
cinnamon fire
slowly heating
melting
will
you see me

alone with you

hearts are burning
blood is rising
pulses pounding

alone with you

candles melting
hearts aflame
pain
searing
blood
rising
r ising
pain
not
dying
crying

al one with you.

it's not easy
knowing
nothing
more than
i need
to know
is it clean
or
is it messy
the truth
hidden
the way we like it
can't last forever
you told me
so
i believed you
wanted to
needed to

don't

need to be

alone, with you

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
