My jaw clenches tight when my eyes lay upon you
A strange sickness washes over
With an unwarranted familiarity

Drifted into a distant setting, intertwined deeply within
Like an old black and white film
Playing against my weary eyelids

Cold, hard skin struggling for warmth
Trying to suppress
Yet with no such luck

Your warm, oaky arms draped over
Fresh dewy scent is imprinted
And the deep hazel gaze

A fortress for the weak
As I watch the beautifully delicate movements
Of the strongly penciled lines amongst your skin

Secrets passed in the longest hours of the night
Warm breath against my shoulder
An evolution in its strangest sense

Yet it was beyond the both of us

Still it rings in my ears
Rattling my fine, brittle bones
Setting fire in my heart

My eyes lay upon you
Slight pull
As a smile gently sweeps across
