will i last?

you changed my life
as i went numb
waking with your lightning storm
inside in my dream
your fire, outside
of me…

i wondered, silently,
will i last through this next moment
in your presence?

drawn to you, still
forever in my memory

  1. torn between present and past. if possible we should let past go completely when we have a promising future in front of us.

    i can feel this tug within myself quite often too.
