I never knew the feeling of love before

That breathlessness

 

of hopeless wanting

But there is someone that ravages my heart

I've breathed her name a million times

 

And scream it a trillion times in my mind

Oktober

Every time she leaves my sight in the grocery store

Until I hunt her down in a panic

 

Retrieving her from the candy section

 

And my heart is calm again

 

Every time this little person gets on the school bus

I have to let her go

Why?

My heart

 

Has cried her name until it became the soundtrack to my identity

Her name


 

It has engraved itself in my consciousness

 

It is the prayer

 

That protects my soul
