The Shift in the Air

The Shift in the Air

A Poem by Broken Molecules

I never feel more alone 
Then I do with you 
Your presence consumes my emotions 
Filling them with loneliness 
Feeding my depression 
Your deafening silence 
Piercing my mind 
Jabbing this knife in my heart 
All I long for 
Your honey-sweet voice 
Whispering your innermost thoughts 
I want these thoughts 
To slip from your lips unfiltered 
Whole and true 
Even if they split my spine 
Desiring the truth 
Your truth 
Cause the memories of you 
Dement me 
The ones of last May 
The days that you'd whispered 
The three little words that brighten my day 
The times that 
I was never close enough 
The hours spent 
With your fingertips learning my body 
Repeating your exploration of my valleys 
To build a memory 
The moments spent 
Under warm blankets 
The late night conversations that never end 
But suddenly the air shifted 
A change in the seasons 
Talks began to find an end 
Now they it seems as though they never even begin 
I'm always too close 
Never far enough 
Funny how things change with the seasons 
But I have not 
Continuously wanting and craving 
Of the same thing 
The same person 
You
