Chromosomes XO

Loving in two very different ways - you say goodbye and I say, stay.


I have the sound of you calling my name

I have the smell of you sewn into my heart

the heart that has been so empty

since you left

sometimes I knock to see if anyone answers

answers are all I have wanted

the candle light flickers

I see the reflection of myself in your eyes

you see me as a reflection of what you are not

my heart has built an internal life around you

you've built a life without me

you've taken my love - the best kind of love I have

I have been searching to get back to you just so maybe I can know that part of myself again
