Everything Stops

In your absence,
Everything stops.

I lose consciousness, at odds with reality, and when you speak,
I am awakened to feel the faint beating of my heart.
Lifeless, without a pulse, until the hope of you revives the energy in me.

Your quiet subtleties intrigue me,
Leaving me mystified, while I lay misty-eyed, as spatial order separates us.
