A melody

Custom User Avatar
More by this author
in your strong yet gentle arms I sit
we both know that around us thunder

splits open the heavens,
the wind rages on like some savage

yet we are totally oblivious to that
as my head sits in your broad chest
I hear nothing,
but the sound of your breathing,
and the rhythmic

beating of my heart
they are completely different sounds but together the two

to create a single harmonious melody, it is odd to think
that after all we've been through
only one thing separates us now...
the complex melody that once was ours now stutters,

it stops
but now when I need you the most
my heart begins to beat again
the sound is small but insistent
and will somehow go on day after day for you only
I hope that somehow the sound will reach

that somehow,

I will be in your arms again,
the simple notes of your breathing and my heart




will join and together create our
melody once more
if you can hear my beating,

I hope that you
will listen to it
I hope that you will follow it

and come

to me

So Sad really good, and it like makes the reader think that there is still HOPE in it like that even though the distance is there it sorta leaves the message of never giving up on hope :)
