Under My Skin – Written Tuesday 28th July 2009 (Aged 34)

Under My Skin

you have walked into my life
and got under my skin
where do i start,
where do i begin?
you look at me with such intensity
i am lost in places of such drama
feelings are there immensely
you hold me close,
i feel a thousand birds fly free
and the banishing of ghosts
what do you mean to me?
can you be part of this?
can i be part of you?
you have walked into my life
and you have got under my skin
days are going by slowly
and i am only breathing
it is hard when you have these feelings
how did we arrive?
what happened with the options,
and these feelings, they grow inside
