    loniliness
    silence
    peace
    serenity...
    ...it
    ....all
    .....chokes me--
    when you leave--

    grappling my neck with long-lanky fingers
    long-lanky fingers
    long-lanky fingers...

    shaking the air from me--
    shaking the care from me--
    shaking the tears from me--
    it's not...
    really fair for me--

    dark desolate self-reflection--
    your smile spurs ressurection--

    i know what i see--
    and i want what i see--

    ~~~~~~~scraping the thought of you--
    with a rake and a *fine toothed comb...
    gathering collecting--
    all of you--
    collecting; all of us...
    needing our co-existence......
    why
    else
    would I
    STAY?

    i'll be around--no doubt
    settling for whatever--
    as long as it's you...
    love you bring...

    rubs my chest gently...

    your voice--
    ~~~touches
    ~~~~something
    ~~~~~~~~~~~in me...

    with small soothing fingers--
    small soothing fingers
    small soothing fingers...

    relieving the pain from me
    relieving the rain from me
    relieving the strain from me--
    relieving me gainfully--

    gracefully...

    thass* why I wait...

    because you are you...
    without pretense--
    lacking the will to be dishonest--

    that's why--
    i'll
    be
    ~~~~~~~~~around.

    (thanks sugah)
