I have never known alone
as when I lie next to you.
I have never felt orphaned,
as when cramped within our zoo.
I have only become this dark
when missing not missing you.
I am breathing in
hoping to exhale, all through.
I don’t want to want to hear you
when I look past our sad dark eyes.
I can’t bear to sing this song
slow dancing echoed sighs.
I don’t want to be this anymore
becoming drawn to close my door.
If you can love me as I am
please help me find breath’s floor.
I don’t want to play house anymore,
my soul wilts in air this poor.
I don’t want to want to breathe us anymore.
I can’t want to breathe this evermore.
