For the one I can never have, but will always keep a special place in my heart ~ forever his.

Lose

Time lost in a maelstrom of light
   Drifting, searching, lost
Looking for an invisible genie
   Dreaming, wishing, wake
Hoping for a vision come true

I lose my head
   Don't forget me now!
   Don't forget our sharing
   Protect me always

Swirls of color dancing
   Euphoria entrancing
   Dazed submission
   Heartache felt
Sinking into an abyss
   the darkness swallows whole
Fighting a mirror
   having it shatter to pieces
A knife at my throat
   ceasing to breathe
The walls closing in
   shrinking what's been possessed
Voices in my head
   taking my own away
The color fades
The spinning stops
The intoxication melts
   And still my heart aches

I lose control
   Don't let go of me!
   Don't let me get away
   Hold me close

Moving, shifting
   time moves forward
Sensing, dreaming
   anticipation builds
Everything once known
   dwindles away
I once had then,
   I lose now
Slipping far
   the dream smashes
Going away
   time never stops

I lose my home
   Don't leave me alone!
   Don't kill the memories
   Be with me

Breathing softly,
   I scarcely move
   afraid the vision might break
Turning away,
   I pretend all is right
   knowing that we could never be
Closing eyes,
   I wish I had not seen you
   remembering everything like a diamond
Mind swirling
   I smile wistfully in heady thought
   confusion touching my life
Wishing on a clouded star
   I hope you have your own wish granted
   hating myself for wanting to be yours
And as the sun rises
   touching the hills
I look at you
   soft breath
   turning back
   blinded
   falling
   hoping
I run away

I lose my heart
   Don't break my gift!
   Don't break it into sand
   Love me tenderly

This is beautiful!
