I am undone by you.

Never once did I think it would get this far.
I didn’t want it to.
Me in my own game of solitaire.
I’m in my own thoughts in which I am losing.
I can’t even win at my own game.
Every breath I take it gets harder to inhale, let alone exhale.
I’ll gasp at the dead of night from a bad dream and roll over.
The only part that’s missing is you aren’t there.
You’re supposed to save me.
I want to get lost in your eyes and never be found.
To feel my heart beating at the same time, but only beating for you.
It’s like you’re a drug I can overdose on.
The only way I walk is knowing that if I fall you will catch me.
The dark brown in your eyes makes me lose myself.
I take one look at you and I am completely drunk.


One response to “I am undone by you.”
