I’d give up my sight

rip the eyes right out of my head

just to see you again

 

and I’d cut off my feet

and sever my legs

just to stand beside you again

 

I’d tear the flesh from my bones

and bleed every drop of my blood

just to brush my hand against yours

 

I’d cut out my tongue

and never speak again

just to taste your kiss

 

and I would die again

a thousand times and more

just to sleep in your arms

 

but I couldn’t breathe, not even a breath

the morning sun couldn’t rise

if my searching fingertips couldn’t find

 

the smooth warmth of your skin
