You are one in two reasons.
As to why I love this place so.

Time comes to a halt.
One breath at a time,
We don’t revolve.

As I learn your one in two reason.
As to why I love this earth, so move…
over and we’ll find,
Meaning and life.
Time will take it’s rest tonight.

One in two reasons live, and breathe.
And beat with me.
Rhythmically, alphabetically,
We move freely.
Floating past the city’s skylines.
We’ll just leave those ghosts behind.

When this earth restarts spinning.
And life grabs our hands,
Directing us where to go…

Remember you are reason one,
As I remain reason two.

We’ll move forward,
One breath at a time.

Written half-asleep, the words poured out of my fingertips. What do you know?

Wow, this is great. I've found that my best work usually writes itself when i least expect it. Or when I'm half-asleep, lol:)...and this is the perfect example. My name is Kiana too, by the way, so I had to comment, haha. Great work and Keep Writing.
