Still
After the time and tears between us
I am washed in starlight
When your eyes meet mine
Still
I become weak
Unable to find the words
As your mouth curls into a smile
Still
In those quiet moments
When the storm in my mind rages
It is you my heart reaches for
Still
It is you
My dream made flesh
I love
Still

Still

Brief was my reign
In the kingdom of your heart
Cast out from its walls
In tears did I depart

No new throne awaits me
I seek no new crown
In dreams I find asylum
I rule over memories now

Still I will watch over you
The heart I swore to defend
Lest sadness besiege you
And bring your smile to its end

For eternity will I lament
All that I was and was not
That cost me you and crowned me
The King That Time Forgot

The King That Time Forgot

blink-fi
My eyelids fall
There you are
In bits and pieces
In clips and phrases
The lines of your hips
The curve of your smile
The shape of your fingers
The sound of your laughter
My senses come alive
Yet I search for breath
It was swept away
Along with my heart
Stolen by you
In an instant
Never to be returned
Forever yours
My eyelids rise
Here you are not
And you won’t be
Until I blink again

Poetry, Writing

Blink
