When nights like this fall; I cower on my bed,
drawing my knees to my stomach, forming a protective shield around myself.
That’s when it hits me, threatening to shatter my shield and drown me.
That’s when I pull your memory to the surface, to dispel the desperate darkness.
That’s when I remember your eyes; the golden tint that lit up my world.
That’s when I recall your touch; my body responding to your command.
That’s when I recall your kiss; savouring it all over again.
I smile to myself as my body tingle in the present; comforted by the fact that I still remembered.
I smiled as I relaxed and welcomed the overwhelming power of sleep knowing that I am hugging you tightly in my heart.
