One - Poem by Ashley Fortin

Can't you remember what we had?
I don't want you to answer.
Just listen to what I remember - the way I wish you had too...
Everytime we would lay in the darkness holding hands,
we would wait for the stars to come out and we would turn
to eachother
and kiss...
Our hearts would become close...
So close we could both feel it.
Then time would blur and all I could feel was a hot sun around me
And the world was silent again.
Because my song and your rythm would be the only things to be heard.
All those layer of skin and I wondered why we needed them?
When all I wanted was you.
And then we would be so close, like we were two galaxies
Passing through
One another...
Till we were just...
One.
And then our lungs would hold.
And then our lungs would hold.
One look between us - because thats all we needed.
Three words between us - because thats all we had.
A split fire - like an explosion.
And our bodies no more... what cages!
What cages...
What cages...
And I remember your words, your breath, your heart beat -
Your eyes.
You were so ugly to yourself when we shed our skins...
But god...
Oh god I loved you.
Your body - no matter what you made of it - so beautiful.
I can still feel everything about you.
And we would fall asleep then... right after our eyes met
Our words spoken - no more powerful than our actions...
And then we would finish in our dreams...
Finish becoming
One.
Can't you remember what we had?
I don't want you to answer.
Just listen to what I remember - the way I wish you had too...
