JUST ONE MINUTE

Updated on October 20, 2019

I feel like have been on the other side of the road, just walking, by myself. While you were on the other side.
And lord knows that I'd still take blame because i really have tried though my actions don't speak that much for evidence .
But before anything else, all I ask is one minute, just a minute, not to try and justify myself or make excuses , just a minute to speak my heart out.
.
Your kisses still keep me awake at night, everytime getting sweeter than the first time.
Your touch, still gives me goosebumps , takes reality from me for a while.
.
Your embrace, still drives me crazy and gets me jumpy like a little kid being tickled.
.
Your voice brings me back to reality, gets me wishing that you were an artist or something because I wouldn't mind going all day listening to you.
.
Your stare lights up my world, and gets me thinking on what's going on in your head.
.
Your presence just gives meaning to my being, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
.
And I could go on and on about how amazing, special, gorgeous and gifted you are, ( which is all true) , but my minute is almost up,
.
And I just don't wanna seem so obvious on saying that I love or I need you or I want you...
..
But, I wanted you to know that you the best thing to have ever happened to me, the one one mistake I would do over and over again even if it hurts, .
.
Your are the light in my tunnel.
