When everything seems complicated, I simply want you.
When emotions are running high and we’ve exhausted all reason,
I want to quiet our wounded insecurities with a touch of love.
When my thoughts have become loud and heavy,
I want your lips to quiet my own with a kiss.
When there is nothing to say,
I want us to say everything with that look which transcends words.
When everything seems complicated,
I simply want you.
Pointlessly hopeful, craving sweet serenity between every breath.
Feelings under the surface rise above in spite of everything.
When belief and truth come together, meaning is complete.
Life is as complicated as it is compelling.
Maybe tomorrow will be worth the wait.
If you can’t give up everything, what will you gain in the end?
Sacrifice takes what you want and nothing less.
Gave you a life for a life, a heart for a heart.
Can’t keep the future at bay.
Leave your fears at the door.
Leave your fears for me.

Cutting through the silence, your words come rushing forth.
You say what I feel until I can feel no more.
Everything that I knew comes knocking on my door.
Until you’re finished speaking my mind, I won’t be able to find that solitude I left behind.
