If Love Could Succumb All That Is Lost

If love could succumb all that is lost Sometimes I forget to breathe My eyes sting because I’m staring too hard to see I forget to blink My hands tremble and yet I’m not focused on one thing I just stare Why am I so nervous for today? Life happens right? Nothing new in my schedule of what to do And then far in the distance as my mind can go it brings me back to you You’re just an image in my mind but it calms me down and nothing is in my way of view My heart’s running in a marathon and just the slightest touch Breaks all the thrill Just stand there in no movement because alone looks can kill Forget what you know and what you’ve heard from them outside Some of them have touched and felt all but the deepest of my insides
