You didn’t give me all of you
So, tell me, why I’m feeling this loss?
To you, our relationship was too heavy a cost.
Our love to history you tossed.
My thoughts are still of you.
Throughout my daily dross.
I miss the devotion, the tether, the cross.
I wonder how do you count the time?
Is it in the hours spent locked sublime
Lying in the arms you desire?
Or is it in thoughts locked in guilty fires?
Perhaps one day you will know
The huge pair that within you grow
And come back to me and learn to breathe
Until this day, I’ll think of you
Exactly as I told you I do.
