i know why

i know why you swoon
in the light of day while reading my words
i know why you swoon
in the din of darkness expecting the attention
on you like a warm salve
all this attention is so very intoxicating
to you and me
in this world where most do not care
in this world where people are cruel
its cold
the way we crush spirits
i know why you swoon
for that hope it may bring
to your desolate heart
starved and stammering for the warmth of love
i know why
i know why you run
after all that swooning
the attention is on you
it feels different
the spotlight of words and love
it feels different
to have to react to attention
that has a real person behind it
i know why you swoon
i know why you run
i know why the world is cold
why we are at once hot like ice
it all comes down to touch
and i know why
