Short Love Poem

Whenever you were next to me, there was no rest of the world. There were no stars painting light to the darkness, no wind at our backs, no birdsong in the trees. To me, there was only ever you.
Even now, things slow down and pause when I think of you. There are still those little sections of lost time, where everything is drowned out by those unanswerable questions about what might have been.

When You're Next To Me

The world seems
somehow slower
when you are
next to me.
As though my senses
cannot focus
on anything
but you.
