I live to feel as I felt
when I was with you.
I live for butterflies
to control my stomach,
I live for my knees
to go weak by a touch,
for the days to grow long
because time stands still
when I’m with you.
I live for the sound
of a voice
that makes it all okay,
for the cold days
when you can keep me warm,
I live for the anxiety
I feel before we meet
I live to fall in love.

No matter
how many times
I claim to be okay
when I’m alone
I still am not whole
part of me is missing
part of me needs you,
because
I live to fall in love.
