I want you in ways I could never explain I crave the days you want me to stay Naive Inevitable Constantly in play You are my only claim to sane Chaos and quicksand run through my veins You are the wildest thing I will never tame
Never stop looking through me There are things that only you can see Your hands are the only ones I want to feel I reach for you until I stall My mind rushes through every move The words I wish you would say only leave you mute My love for you has more than grown … Continue reading Never Stop
