His kisses were like the setting sun
Kissing goodbye to the mountain tops
They left me feeling warm, soft
I melted to his touch
He kissed me slowly
Like he wanted to memorize
Every curve, every ridge of my mouth
Never rushing, he held me tenderly
The back of my head in his hand
His fingers scrunched up in my hair
Guiding me, leading me deeper
A soft nip on my lower lip
Sent waves of pleasure pulsing through my veins
He made me feel alive
Like I could feel not just my heart
But every part of me, fluttering
I felt myself move to his rhythm
I held his face in my hands
It fit perfectly
Just the way his lips fit mine
And that’s how I knew we belonged
His hand in my hair, mine holding his perfect face.
It’s been a while since I saw that smile on your face,
The one that used to reach your eyes
And light ’em up like the 4th of July fireworks.
It seems as though all the reasons why I was the one
Suddenly become the reasons why now, I wasn’t.
Even though you were my happiness
I failed to make myself, yours,
Though you were my world
I couldn’t be farther from yours.
When did the distance become so much?
When did you cringe at the sound of my voice?
When did it become a chore to call me?
I tried but I’m sorry baby, to have pushed you this far.
Some days it seems like you’re better off without me,
Without all the drama I come with,
But most days, I let myself be selfish
Because I know that if you leave,
So would all the warmth and safety leave,
And I’m not ready to live in a cold world without your fire to keep me warm.
