I cried myself to sleep each night
The turmoil in my head not ceasing
Thoughts of you tumbling through my head
The hurt, flaming through my body

The flames-
Engulf me
Your soul-
Suffocates me
The love-
Kills me

It's not you
...it's me
I can’t love you openly.
But I do love you

My soul-
Holds you gently
My heart-
Loves you deeply
My mind-
Cries out for you

Look deeper, when you look into my eyes
Feel me tremble when you hold me
I cower at your intensity
I run from your heart

My tears-
Are searing
Your touch-
Is scalding
Our love-
Is leaving
My soul-
...Is crying
