Life does not start with me. {Poetry}

 

Because of you 
I’m a coward

Wanting to live forever

To gaze into the infinite depth of your eyes


Endlessly

 

Because of you

I’m hungry 
To feast on your smile


And thirst

To be drunk in your voice

Till my head is filled with notes


Emanating from your lips

 

Because of you 
I’m fearless

And know


Life must be lived

In a blaze

And ferocity


Of a thousand suns

 

Because of you


I’m alive

Since I know


Life does not start

or end

With me

 

 {Have no fear. Be a coward.}
