This world never existed
Until you grabbed my hand
And ripped me from my marble pedestal.
My once stone legs stepped of their own accord
Til I was chest to chest with you.
The ice covering my skin shattered
When you wrapped your arms around my waist,
Pulling me ever closer to your light.
Your amber irises sparked an earthquake.
Every wall I so cautiously built, piece by piece,
Crumbled instantaneously under your gaze.
You kissed me, and my lungs expanded,
Desperate to receive oxygen I had lost.
My heart jolted to life
As your fingers dragged slowly across my skin,
And your lips moved against mine.
My blood tasted you and raced to my skin,
Begging for more contact with you,
The soul made from the same stardust.
My hands reached for your familiarity, your warmth.
I never realized I was hypothermic.
But then I met you,
And I realized I was freezing to death.
