Red sheets between soft skin
can you feel me
when I move away
leaving the warmth to die out
as the cold air takes it's place

The difference between clouds
and clear skies
is
a question of movement
a question of love

If I breathe in
will your lungs swell
If I sing
will your ears burn
If I speak
will you listen

If I move
will you pull me close
or let the cold air take my place
as the distance expands

"If I breathe in
will your lungs swell
If I sing
will your ears burn
If I speak
will you listen

If I move
will you pull me close
or let the cold air take my place
as the distance expands"

I liked all of it so much, but this is amazing

Being alone is something that each of us has to deal with and I am very fond of the way that you deal with it. Being detached even in a very personal moment seems to be so natural with the context that you put it in, even though to many it seems so unnatural.
