I Want Her Near

In the crisp dawn
I meet her gaze
I see the loneliness there
Insidious and unforgiving

I love
She knows
But the world still grinds a space between
My own sick mind fuels her despair and I wonder if I am man enough to save her life

The memory of a blade on soft skin
The horror of her being ripped from my life
It haunts me
It haunts her

It haunts

Will we ever be the same
Or will tragedy bring this fire of love and lust to a raging blaze
Or will I stand alone at a funeral pyre
Wanting her near
But watching her drift away
Dispirit dancing amongst the flames of my lost love

I fear
This loss would be too great to bare
It would break me
and leave me wanting

She is more than a woman
She is life
She is light
She is lust and love and hate and anger
She is everything to me

And she is drifting away

The morning light shines on her wonderful face
I hope it will continue
I want her near
