You - Poem by Silver Akira

What is this feeling?
A darkness spilling upward and out,
I’m nearly drowned by it,
Two arms wrap around me,
Fighting with me, for me,
I hear a heartbeat then silence,
You try to help me,
But still I fall…
I whisper your name my only sanctuary,
All night I toss and turn your voice whispering in my head.
“I love you don’t do this.” You whisper.
Your name is upon my lips as I give you my pain filled kiss,
“Depression is all I feel, Lies, Pain It’s all to real, almost like being sliced by a knife…”
“I can make it better…” Tears like a bloody river trail down your face, almost like a sacrifice.
I kiss the tears away unable to stand your pain.
As we both knew your light saw me through and now I need you,
Your touch, Your smile, Your gentle kiss, Your body near mine, Your understanding, Your hopes, dreams, even fears, But last of all I need your heart.
