Not very much scares me.
I get through life and I don’t worry much
I’ve had to switch my emotions off
When it concerns me.
But you came along and opened my heart
My soul. Open to bleed.
And now I have worries that keep me awake
And play like a movie that’s stuck What if I start to forget
The exact blue of your eyes?
And the sparkle in them when you laugh
How I love to look in them
And see if you’re happy or sad
How my heart jumps when I look into them
Across a room of people.
What if I forget your laugh?
And how happy I get when hearing it.
What if I forget how to make you laugh?
What if I never hear it again?
What if I’m never there to make you happy?
What if we don’t talk for a day
And then for two, three, four
Then a week and then we stop even Thinking about it.
What if I forget the exact smell of your skin
And how it tastes?
And how it feels
And how much I want to bite it
What if I don’t remember how your hands feel
when they explore
Every part of my body.
And the ecstasy I get from you.
What if I don’t recognise the sound of your voice
And how I love to listen to it
If I forget our conversations
And if we don’t have any any more.
How your lips kiss mine
As if they’ve always known each other
What if you forget me?
What would I do without you?
How would I live?
These things scare me more than death.
