When I'm Not With You

by Brittany C

Time creeps by in slow motion.
When you're not within my arms.
My nights seem so very long
and everything appears so plain.

I spend my time
thinking of you;
it doesn't help
time go by faster.

Still it's just too hard
not to think of you.
When my body craves
your hands gentle touch.

Loneliness is all I seem to know when
we don't see each other for days.
My heart aches for you so painfully
seeming to harden, about to crack.

Cold nights full of longing
because I can't have you,
lying next to me in bed.
To keep my safe and warm.

I find myself dreaming of you
through lonely days and nights
of you holding me close.
Saying everything is all right
