in the balance
of what was
and what should be

you hold me
with all the strength
of your love
to keep me near

what i never thought
was inside of me

reminding me
what i never knew
i could do

giving me
the power to
be where i want
to be

even if
all i want to do

is be with you

i will protect you
in the day

when your eyes
mine will always
stay open

scanning, and

always looking ahead

until you
once more

refreshed, and relaxed

then you can
protect me

all over again

kiss of halves

you come to me
broken in battle
weary of the wars
that once made
you strong
holding life by a thread
i will warm
what's left of your heart
fill your mind
with the pleasures of hope
kiss you
to show you
there's still love in the world
for you
and make you whole again
one stitch
a time
until you know you're mine

the unknown

you didn't tell me
i was going to care this much

you didn't show me
who you were

until the moment
i fell in love

by then it was too late

there was no way
i could leave you

i was invested

there was no way
i could forget you

i was addicted

there was no way
i could stop loving you

i saw a look in your eyes
that matched
the searchlight in
my heart

the part
i thought no one
could see

you saw through me
and opened my soul

i can't turn away

it was always you

how confident
we think we are

until we hear the footsteps

how bright
the day seems to be

until we walk under the bridge

how sure
we are of living
until we feel the fear
of living
on the edge
of the comfort
we think we have

before it all goes grey again

a mission

to see it
and write it

to capture it
and feel it

to know it
and love it

before it slips away

....into the remainder of the day...
