    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.
