I’m lost in a shadow.
And then I see you and all I see is light.
Your voice soothes and calms, your scent intoxicates me, your warmth makes me feel safe.
If I am quiet it is because you have taken my breath away. If I appear blank it’s because nothing troubles me when I am with you. If I am jittery it’s because every part of my body has just skipped a beat.
You hurt me. But only because when we laugh, we laugh so hard that my ribs are sore for days after.
I can’t breathe and I don’t want to.
And then you leave and I am lost again.
Lost in your shadow.
*You’re so vain. I bet you think this ode is about you…
