By soul_versing


When around you,
my hands shake, they tremble.
no words leave my lips.
My chest locks as my heart decides
to take its time beating.
Time stands still
and I'm frozen solid,
deciding whether I should be so bold
as to kiss you.
Or savor in this moment and wait.
my thoughts are constant,
yet I've not a single thought at all.

your face burned so deep in my mind.
I feel like a defect,
busting out the seams of this fucked up
misprint of backwards hardwiring
because our timing couldn't be any worst.
I'd defy the laws of nature
just to embed myself within you
because something about you feels like home.

Your voice flows deep.
I'd like to imagine
that somewhere,
inside of you,
is the missing pieces of me.

The pieces long forgotten.
kept hidden away.
while my soul slept
because if I were awake
all this time without you;
I would have killed myself off slowly,
losing what life I have left inside.

I'm magnetically drawn to you
but the clincher far exceeds that statement
as I crave every inch of you:
I've seem to have fallen into a realm of passing time
and sorrowful regret,
had I known you existed, upon sight,
our souls would be locked in verse.

And in a tiny fraction of a millisecond
your soul latched on to mine,
and this is the story of how I became yours.

    I have seen that look in a women’s eyes... don’t let him fool you, it is intoxicating. Desire is a powerful force. Wonderful read here.
