Half of Something Else

On the night that we met, you said that you wanted something more from me. And it was all that I could do. I remember your face, like a child, the way that you blushed and the way that you smiled.

And now it’s all that I can do. And I wake up feeling new.
There’s so much more I never knew.

So I think of all the years spent alone, it’s like you’re searching for something to make you feel whole. Like you’re half of something else.
Just a fraction of yourself.

Don’t take it so hard. We did what we could. There were no easy answers to be understood. It was all that we could do. We’re the only ones who knew. And all I think about is you.

The way that you screamed.
The way that you cried.
The way that you’d wipe your eyes and fall against my side.

The way that you told me I was wrong.

And the way that you’d sing when you’d hear a song.

And the way that you answered when you knew I was gone.

Now I know that I’m blind and that you’re all I see and yeah I know it’s not clever, but I just want you with me.

I’m only half of something else.
