I've Got Enough Love For Two

I feel your lips against my skin,

White,

Snowy and porcelain.

I feel the pressure against my hips, 

From where your hands were 

Holding onto me for what seemed to be

Hours,

Upon hours of close contact.

Although,

I woke up, and it had been a dream.

How I long to feel your touch,

But only against my skin -

As my sun-kissed cheeks

Turn bright red.

 

Falling for you is a roller coaster.

Enough about the

Past.

I want to be in the

Present.

Hopefully in the future...

I will be with you because,

This is the feeling of a lifetime!

I want to be held in someone's arms,

I want to feel loved, 

And it would be something special

If it were you.

 

Wouldn't it be a contrast,

If just for only an hour -

I was swept up in the moment,

Extroverted,

Unwavering in decision.

But that is more than what it seems,

For I am not perfect,

And I don't have a lot of loving,

But I think I've got enough love for two.

 

So let me breathe again,

And savor in the -

Moment,

I can't - 

Reconcile with my time,

Or my happiness anymore.

Hours fly by like minutes,

And minutes pass like seconds,

And when the seconds tear off sprinting,

It is as if I am flying at the speed of light,

Just waiting to be called yours,

If only for a moment.
