2/20 

by Kristina

As long as I can’t breathe
Think 
Or see clearly 
You are outside
Inside
And a part of me 
As long as I can’t have
A moment 
Alone
You are my safe place
My rescue
My home 
As long as I can’t wake
Without the image
Of you
I will forever be
Prisoner to those
Eyes, that look 
As long as I am breathing
I will be hoping
And believing 
As long as I live
I will lay here
And wait
Until the moment
You look at me 
And you say
I choose you
I can’t lose you
And you hold me
Like nothing is wrong
And we both wonder why
It took this long
