I took the heart out of my chest
Laid it on the desk in front of me
Then asked it to help me write
Something that could convey
How much you mean to me.
It said nothing at all
Just laid there.
Then I realized
You were not just in my heart
You are in my soul
In everything I do
Everything I touch
You are every single breath I take
Every time I get angry
Every piece of food I don’t eat
And every word I speak.
You are my best friend
The most excellent lover
The only person I tell everything to
Every time my heart beats
In my chest
And that space of time in between
You are every moment I felt lonely
Every time my phone rang
All the times I wish someone loved me
And all the spaces of time in between
When I felt nothing.
I wrote something for you
But I got so lost in how much I loved you
I forgot to write it.
