Have I Told you

By , Spokane, WA

Have I told you

that you make the

darkness that grows in

my mind wilt and

wither like the flowers

that give in to the

cold of autumn months

 

Have i told you

that when you tell

me that i am

beautiful,

my cheeks feel as if

a fire had been lit

within my stomach and

crawled up with no intention

of being extinguished

 

Have i told you

that your fingertips burn

holes into my skin

like a cigarette

left lit and forgotten

to set fire to the

entire house.

 

Have i told you

that youre the rock

that i lean on

but that also holds

me under water and

leaves me

breathless

 

Have i told you

that i am gasping for

air

Have i told you

that my vision is

going blurry

and my world is

going black

 

Have i told you

that i love you

but i cant

stay

with you any longer

 

Have I told you

that i think i see the light.

It's getting brighter

with every minute

youre away

 

Have i told you

i love you

 

Have i told you

goodbye.
