A Deadly Love

by LostWords   Oct 21, 2012

Remember the first time I fell for you?
I haven't gotten up since.

Three years of memories and
you still send a rush over me.
Falling into a trance with you.

I feel your breathe on my neck.
Your arms hold me close.
Kissing down my body.

The sun just lifting on the skyline,
gripping the last fragment of that dream.

Sharply, I wake to an empty bed.
It is so cold without you. I turn over,
grab your memories and pull them near.

I just want to lay here forever.
If I don't get up, I can't fall down.
Tossing over, I remember that day.

Two Marines stood at my door.
Immediately my heart knew.

On foot patrol, defusing an IED.
Exploiting your body to save your men.
All gave some, you gave all.

Rolling back over, I try to dream of you.
Maybe this time my eyes will be dry.
Perhaps I won't shake violently.

One more lonely night.
Another toss and turn.

      Thank you FallenFromGraceByMyChoice, it means a lot that you think this is beautiful and that one day you would want to read this to your daughter.

      Thanks Autuumnbree, you are very sweet. Thinking of past loved ones tends to give me chills or completely breaks me down, especially him...
