You entered my life overnight.
A text. Saying you would be here.
You arrived. And nothing was the same.
Your playful nature,
And unreserved adoration for this home
Became as ever present and common place
As the very air I breathe.
You came and everything changed
For the better in both you and me…
But you left my life in 30 minutes.
One missed moment. An overlooked opportunity.
And you were gone.
A drive. Trying like hell
To outrun the hands on your clock…
But it didn’t matter.
Just as quickly as you came, you left.
And now I’m left
Wondering where I should go.
I can’t fill the emptiness you left behind.
My lungs still gasp for the air
That evaporated with you.
And everything changed for the worse.
But I would still go back
And let you in this door.
Because no matter the sorrow right now,
There was a time
When I would have never asked for more.
