don’t ever leave me.
You are the wind
that tosses my thoughts in a frenzy
and twirls joy-stained leaves through my life
You are the paint
that dyes my greying heart with dreams
and colors the blank canvas of my mind
You are the coat
that cuts off the chill of cruelty
and hugs warmth back into my bones
You are bubbles in chocolate milk
You are rollerblade runs in my jeans
You are the thread sewing me together
And could unravel everything, if you pull it
So please,
don’t ever leave me.
