broken

as I hold you close
nose nestled in your hair
I swell with ancient love
and want to wrap myself round you
and gather you to my soul
beyond all words and explanations
this knowledge that you,
scarred and broken as you are,
are precisely the right shape
to fill this hole in me

 

Inspired by love, and also by Rihanna – Stay:

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay

Ohhh the reason I hold on
Ohhh cause I need this hole gone
Funny you’re the broken one but I’m the only one who needed saving
Cause when you never see the lights it’s hard to know which one of us is caving

Hollow

hollowed out
the aftermath
of a storm
that swept through
trashing my opinion
of myself
breaking me up
into tiniest pieces
now all is numb
feeling nothing
just weary
sunken eyes
like a survivor
of a shipwreck
I float here
clinging onto
the one thing
keeping me afloat
and wait
for the sun
to come out again
