With a sudden rush, I remember it now
How the night was stifling; the air so thick
I feel my heart throbbing, and pulse pounding
I sense the sweat now that I am sick
As though a heavy burden weighs on me,
I feel the bitter taste of hope and fear
The world outside my window
Becomes a world that only I can hear
Now visions blend with the silence
I canít acknowledge the face, nor figure opaque
Will I ever grasp what this means?
Will I remember when I wake?
They say time is an intangible entity
But I know itís real; ever changing
I can feel it stop like a bird
On a branch, with its feet rearranging

I wake with a start
A smile painted on my lips, my face
I canít recall what started my fall
Only thoughts of a formless face
I canít sleep tonight, will I tomorrow?
To think of something else instead
Is what I intend to do, though I know,
Her face will never again leave my head

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

Perfect.  loved, loved, loved this...I'll

this hopeless romantic.
