This is a poem for the person who taught me to love again
I look into your eyes despite
The fact that it's only in
And I see everything I
Need. They scream my name.
I hear your voice in clips
And phrases you've
Begun to sound so old,
So changed so different
I look at pictures
Where you've sent me kissy faces
And I close my eyes as I feel
Your hand on my cheek
And your lips on mine.
I keep them closed so I dont
Have to open them to
Nothing. My heart beats as I lay
In the field 1500 miles away
From where you lie tonight and
Wonder if your eyes are seeing
The same stars. I breath and wonder
If our inhales and exhales are still
In sync just like they used to be.
When I look into you and
I see everything I need I see
Everything that I want. That I have ever
Wanted and I just know.
You've been gone for a few days
Now but you're never truly gone I
Have a part of you peacefully
Slumbering right below the
Missing piece of my heart
That I sent with you. Don't give it
Away and don't break it.
I run my hands along the side of my neck
The way you used to it doesnt
Feel the same but it reminds me of
How close you truly are. This is
Nothing more than a poem.
A poem inside my journal.
A poem for a love that will never fade.
A poem for my mississippi man.
