the chasm between you&I seems filled with anguish ...my mornings are routine, complete with green tea & looking over my shoulder ...and realizing that another night has passed... and I slept alone again. on a college campus, pursuits of a second-rate education run through north philly's veins ...and i see tainted couples who are faking what it is ...that you&I do naturally. the only part of you that keeps me company in-between classes ...is the music in my headphones that regenerate memories of afterglow arguments ...and the arduous relationship that makes me whole ...and secure. we keep secret what it is that will solidify our union ...no one knows why we smile at each other... all they need to know is that you&I ...are true, and simply powerful with our requited love. there is nothing i wouldn't do ...to protect you, holder of the soil awaiting to birth our legacy. ...i will defend you from pain suffering and the wolf-whistles of suitors who simply don't know ...you are mymuse... and should be treated with the humility all queens demand. our days, now, are marked with bright mornings & painfully lonely nights, as we allow the day to slow down & let thoughts pour into our minds ...we run away from our loneliness... but in our individual beds, i sleep on my side you sleep on your side ...and hope our dreams collide & I get to experience your smile ...before i wake up another morning... and realize i've slept alone ...again. ?
