Cannons ----- Can you hear my voice? Close your eyes. Breathe. Just listen. This nightmare wasn't a dream and I'm not a figment of your imagination. I won't leave you alone here. Not yet, not until you're strong enough. Until then, I'll hold you. I'll sing the lullabies of your childhood as you drift off into unconsciousness, blissfully unaware of the time passing. As I sing, I think of all the things I should have told you long ago. I want to tell you how much I love you. How I waited for bedtime so I could dream of your face. How you carry sunshine in your back pocket and always have enough to share. I want to tell you how I admire you. Your tenacity and steadfastness. It's been years and I still see our future in your mahogany eyes. We're the unstoppable ones. You've never let me face my demons alone. My first and last, all I need. I've never loved so hard. We move together, consuming each other with a fervor described only in books. I'll hold you a little tighter while I still can. Taking every moment I can to breathe you in. A peaceful smile touches your lips as I kiss your forehead for the thousandth time. That smile. Each one is a cannon blast to my chest. As I wait for you to awaken once more, I think of how it all began. You came into my life out of nowhere. You've been a strong wind knocking me to the ground since the moment we met. I've waited for you, longer than you know. Your heart is like mine, you see. Bruised. But somehow, you pull me out of the dark. Your eyes flutter open, and we cling to one another, breathing ragged, hearts beating way too fast. Every time your hand touches mine, all fear, anxiety, and doubt disappears. I'm hopeless. My face in your hands, you kiss me. Our lips touch, electric shock, fire and ice, lightning strike to my core. I suddenly can't breathe, and you? You bring me back to life in the best way. -----

Can you hear my voice?
Close your eyes. 
Breathe. 
Just listen. 
This nightmare wasn't a dream and I'm not a figment of your imagination.
I won't leave you alone here. 
Not yet, not until you're strong enough.
Until then, I'll hold you.
