Got the prompt from a different writing website but I thought I'd post it here anyway since I've been absent for a while

More Than What I've Got To Lose

The wrinkles in yesterday’s shirt

The wrinkles in yesterday’s shirt Sleep stuck in your already open eyes

The wrinkles in yesterday’s shirt Sleep stuck in your already open eyes “Good morning” slurred before the coffee

The wrinkles in yesterday’s shirt Sleep stuck in your already open eyes “Good morning” slurred before the coffee You treasure like you’ve won first prize

Messy buns atop your head

Messy buns atop your head Late nights binging TV shows

Messy buns atop your head Late nights binging TV shows Dragging me out at 6 a.m.

Messy buns atop your head Late nights binging TV shows Dragging me out at 6 a.m. To see last night's rains new rainbow

Towing me to watch from behind you

Towing me to watch from behind you Cherishing every new pup you meet

Towing me to watch from behind you Cherishing every new pup you meet Smiling at each stranger you pass

Towing me to watch from behind you Cherishing every new pup you meet Smiling at each stranger you pass As you go bouncing down the street

To see the wonder in your eyes

To see the wonder in your eyes Even if it’s the millionth time you’ve seen the stars.

To see the wonder in your eyes Even if it’s the millionth time you’ve seen the stars. Living in the memories we’ve made

To see the wonder in your eyes Even if it’s the millionth time you’ve seen the stars. Living in the memories we’ve made Because I know they’re only ours.

I’ll drag my feet, groan and grin

I’ll drag my feet, groan and grin But I’d follow you anywhere to hold your hand

I’ll drag my feet, groan and grin But I’d follow you anywhere to hold your hand To lace our fingers meant to hold each other

I’ll drag my feet, groan and grin But I’d follow you anywhere to hold your hand To lace our fingers meant to hold each other And never let go, even god be damned.

Even when we sit, as I listen

Even when we sit, as I listen I explore the freckles upon your face

Even when we sit, as I listen I explore the freckles upon your face Counting constellations

Even when we sit, as I listen I explore the freckles upon your face Counting constellations Splashed beyond the limits of space

These moments in our time

These moments in our time Ticking seconds off our clock

These moments in our time Ticking seconds off our clock They’re not wasted on the world

These moments in our time Ticking seconds off our clock They’re not wasted on the world Nor butchered on the chopping block

Yet still they catch and hold my throat

Yet still they catch and hold my throat Choking and purple, it aches me so

Yet still they catch and hold my throat Choking and purple, it aches me so To think one day, the moments will tick out

Yet still they catch and hold my throat Choking and purple, it aches me so To think one day, the moments will tick out And memories will be all I have left to hold

Imperfect rows form a perfect grin

Imperfect rows form a perfect grin Cheery and loving is that which I adore

Imperfect rows form a perfect grin Cheery and loving is that which I adore Your smile is what I’ve got to lose

Imperfect rows form a perfect grin Cheery and loving is that which I adore Your smile is what I’ve got to lose And you are so much more.

Holding me tight when thunder strikes

Holding me tight when thunder strikes To hear your heart pound and listen as you sing

Holding me tight when thunder strikes To hear your heart pound and listen as you sing A lullaby over the sound of rain

Holding me tight when thunder strikes To hear your heart pound and listen as you sing A lullaby over the sound of rain If only for the melody to lull you to sleep

Your light, your love, your brilliant mind

Your light, your love, your brilliant mind Your heart and eyes, your spontaneity shines

Your light, your love, your brilliant mind Your heart and eyes, your spontaneity shines Your spirit glows like the moon above

Your light, your love, your brilliant mind Your heart and eyes, your spontaneity shines Your spirit glows like the moon above And brings me joyful fear of many kinds

You are everything I have to lose

You are everything I have to lose My love, my life, my memories

You are everything I have to lose My love, my life, my memories To lose you would shatter my world

You are everything I have to lose My love, my life, my memories To lose you would shatter my world Leave me lost in moments I never did seize

In truth you are more than what I’ve got to lose

In truth you are more than what I’ve got to lose In ways I can’t describe

In truth you are more than what I’ve got to lose In ways I can’t describe Which is why I cherish this time we hold

In truth you are more than what I’ve got to lose In ways I can’t describe Which is why I cherish this time we hold For in this time, we are alive
