Sometimes it all seems like a dream
These distortions of my mind
Slowly drowning my soul
Has illness crept over me
There could be nothing more real
I've tried to deny who I am
Tried a million times to be like everyone else
But I cannot
Because I am not like everyone else
I don't know how to live any other way
I don't know how to live without you
I never want to have to try
To turn away now would leave me lifeless
My heart drawn and quartered
Consumed by the vultures ever circling
This is not how this day was to end
This day of hope, of love, of trust
Celebrating the vows recited
Instead it is this debilitating doubt that re-emerges
Reminding me of the infinite space that separates us
Disguising itself within the realization of our truths
Yet, all is not lost
I don't know what makes me think you can move mountains
I guess it's because I know you
Know that you would do everything in your power to try
No matter how silly the request
At that very moment you dropped everything
You did, you dropped everything
Taking your time to help two baby raccoons
I didn't mean for you to do that but you did
You just laughed and said I got you with those damn raccoons
In all honesty it is quite the opposite
Your eyes when you look at me sometimes
And that smile, like the one you have right now
There are simply no words to describe
After all this time
You'd think I'd be used to it
But you get me every time
Forcing me to turn myself around
To remember where we've been
Til there is nothing left to do but reach for you
Nothing left but to feel you there
Tracing the past with my fingertips
Nose to navel
Perfectly left uninterrupted
My mind's eye hypnotized
As I take it all in
Though most would perceive little more than air
It is enough to bring me back
Releasing this suffocating weight from my chest
Allowing me to breathe once again
