Closer Than Skin


Closer Than Skin

I carry you with me

Through the hours of the day

The minutes trickle out

A trail of blood red wine

The seconds, like blossoms

Sweetly fall into decay

I picture your face

Hear your voice in my mind

I carry you with me

Through the hours of the day

I carry you with me

Closer than skin

Dreams of you, like thunder

Crash and roll away

Thoughts of you, like raindrops

Fill me to the brim

I cover my eyes

Against desires they betray

I carry you with me

Closer than skin

 I carry you with me

Through the hours of the day

The minutes tumble past

Disregarded, left behind

The seconds, like memories

Gently fade away

I picture your face

Taste your kisses in rewind

I carry you with me

Through the hours of the day

I carry you with me

Closer than skin

Dreams of you, like storms

Leave me in disarray

Thoughts of you, like snowflakes

Melting from within

I cover my eyes

Hold my secrets, lest they stray

I carry you with me

Closer than skin
