Heart Song

I lay here alone, thinking of you.

Your voice echoes in my mind,

I see your face,

I taste your lips,

I feel your touch,

I need you now.

Whether you know it or not.

My heart sings to you its undying love song.

My mouth whispers it's prayer for you.

My mind thinks of a rhyme for you.

But my body does not move.

It lays unwavering yet unsteady in it's solitary confinement of the darkness it's soaked in.

I tilt my head back and the blood rushes past my eyes.

It feels like you're pumping my adrenaline faster and faster through my too-warm body.

Suddenly, just as ny eyes are about to roll back into my skull I hear a voice of sweet ecstacy.

My frail body moves forth and you appear in my eyesight.

Then for the first time in a long time, I smile.

Not because I saw you.

Not because you hugged me.

Not because you kissed me.

But because you came when my heart called.

That proves your love for me.

That makes all the difference in the world.
