I wish I could explain how much I care about you...
How I love you like the smell of pavement after the rain,
How I miss you like the sky misses the stars on a cloudy night,
How I need you like my lungs need fresh air
But if I had you,
I'd never need the smell of the rain
Never need to wish on another shooting star
And I would never need that air again...
...except to breathe you in
If I had you
My world would be aligned again,
The storms would dissipate,
And my fears would be calmed
But I realize you are only a figment of my imagination...
...Or maybe, just a realization that I can find this in myself
