i n y o u r p r e s e n ce
in your presence i was like a pool of water,
the slightest touch could cause waves.
in your presence those waves were soft, calming,
like the caress of cold hands on warm cheeks.
in your presence i could not think of anything stronger than the pull i had to you,
and much like gravity, you were a constant.
you were always on my mind,
always bringing me to good places i would have never known without you.
with you i smiled,
with you i laughed,
with you i cried,
and with you,
i felt like it could be okay.
