The House Of Kray



When you are away from me,

Each minute is missing its heart,

Like an egg with nothing inside.


Don't you know...

The sunlight only lights up the lace at my window

Because you love me.


The night only turns my bed cool and welcoming

So that you can join me there.


I only breathe,

Beat,

And covet each moment

Because of the promise that you'll be part of it.


Come back to me.

These fingers are lost without your skin.

Only your kiss,

Your joy,

Your laughter

Can convince my little world to wake up,

Settle quietly in your hair,

And live, moment by moment, in the House of Kray.
