We lay in bed together
Like so many times before
My head upon your chest
Your arms wrapping around
You hold me near to you
And I rest into your frame
Perfect this should be
At peace I should feel
Yet my world is shattered
Small shards raining down
Sharp edges scratch my skin
As a storm brews within
Here I lay beside you
Yet it isn’t you beside me
Here we are together
Yet so alone I feel
This body beside me looks like you
The voice that speaks is yours
But you are nowhere to be found
Your mind a splintered fractal
How can I miss you when you’re here?
What is this desperation I feel?
How can we be alone together?
What do I do?
Your mind is shattering bit by bit
Your reality moving further from mine
Your body aches from constant movement
Your mind begs for a glimpse of peace
Your body lays beside me
A shadow of who you are
Your voice not quite right
Your face hard and cold
I miss you desperately and passionately
I miss you like a fish misses the sea
You are my rock amidst the storms
So what do I do now that you are the storm?
