It’s killing me, my darling :: SOTD

Because your mine

Keep Art Alive :: “Because You’re Mine” :: Art by Sarah Joncas

Sweet on the outside,
but bitter on the inside/
I’m giving up now,
but I swear to God,
I really tried.”

Darling
by me

You spread promises across my naked skin
thick as honey, sweet as sin,
and with each word another cord snakes around me.

Darling you’re mine
you are the sun in my sky
and oh how I can never be without you

You retract reasons from my open arms,
sharp as razors, rough as recovery,
and with each deletion another denial hides inside me.

Darling you’re mine
you are the sun in my sky
and oh how I can never be without you

You steal forever from my tear-filled eyes,
cold as winter, heavy as heaven,
and with each step another bough breaks beneath me.

Darling you’re mine
you are the sun in my sky
but oh how I will always be without you
