My World

a poem

there was a time

when you were my world

where I lived and breathed

by your words

where your praises

fed my self-worth

I followed your ebbs and flows

orbiting around your sun

for any glimpse of light

I yearned for your love

dimming only when you were

away from my presence

only to brighten when

you graced my doorstep

the smell of your skin

was my favorite perfume

your desire warmed

the inside of me

and your love gave me purpose

I could stare forever

in the stars in your eyes

telling me the secrets of the universe

your arms kept me grounded

in confines of safety

my heart beat to the

cadence of your breath

filling me with joy

you were my sun and moon

my north star

you were absolute

you were my world


you took my world away


and then

the desolation

of your absence

taught me

to become my own world
