Back To The Stars - Poem by Timmy Tubbs

Though my insides resemble no fashion of who I used to be
My gaze is still keeps your eyes wide open
It bears no difference than before darling
But everything else is different than then
I still see your lashes and right on through

Though your voice strikes different words
And carries a better tune
I still know exactly who you are
My savior, I plead with trembled hands
What can I ever do to repay this debt?
Just name your price
For saving my life

“Can I just be alone for a while? ” yes, I said that to you
Late October, your words cracked my seems
But hopefully, started stitching yours back together
That man poisoned your skin and drug you around
He indulged in self pity in his own stormy weather

I hugged time too close as it circled fast
I turned frames away from our stars
And I finally began to laugh
Witnessing a man aching to shove his one
Into the past
I know my explanations came too fast
And on that frightful day
This monsters tongue moved with ill-conceived intentions
So I should mention
It was so hard to map a life without him
Especially since pieces of you were in love with him
I saved all I could babe, and I hope it was enough
Enough to carry a smile when I look at you
To turn those frames back to our stars
Though we have changed, would it suffice to say
This newborn still sheds unconditional love for you
