holy grail.

My heart’s yearning for you–

Endlessly, needfully.

I ache for your warmth

And words of affection,

The kiss of your breath

Against my nostrils;

That’s the only air

I want to breathe


Too much time has passed

And ‘m lying in someone’s arms

And even you

Now belong to someone new.

But I can’t stop this yearning,

I can’t quell this longing



Just once more

I wish i’d see your face


So I can remember

What it feels like

To be looked upon

Like a holy grail.


Wrote this in less than ten minutes! Jeez. My heart feels like a talking drum right now. I promise this is the last buzz for today, but tell me, good or nah?!
