Your face was soft, like a cloud of smoke.
Your hands froze the world in a single stroke.
Your eyes were the light at the end of the storm.
Your arms were the blanket that kept me warm.
The sound of your heart made planets collide.
The touch of your lips changed the pace of the tide.
You made me whole and tore me apart.
Your perception of life unsilenced my heart.
