Laying here imagining your arms around me keeping me safe
Keeping me warm
Keeping me at home
Fighting the feeling of my hollowed out heartache that’s keeping me awake
Keeping me cold
Keeping distant
Laying here thinking of your laugh, the echoed memory keeping me in those precious moments
Keeping me happy
Keeping me whole
Wondering why I always mess things up
Keeping you at arms length leaving you in the dark
Keeping me in the dark
Keeping me lonely
Laying here thinking of how your heavy breathing and steady heartbeat help keep me alive
Keeping me breathing
Keeping me in Peace
Holding back my tears because I feel so lost
The fear keeping me in the depths of doubt
Keeping me numb
Keeping me wishing
Imagining your arm around me here in the dark
Keeping me safe
Keeping me at home
Keeping me loved
