In Your Presence

I can feel you now,
in the corner of the room.

Your body up against mine,
and I'm falling
into the sky.

Our heat tangles up
in circles only we know of.
It's only you and me now.
It's only you and me.

The bite of your teeth
stings but I'm still falling.
And then you slip,
and I'm so happy to be alive,
in your presence.

You push,
as our breathing,
becomes a rhythm,
to the beat of our own song.

And soon, it's over.
I stay by your side,
until our the beating of our hearts,
and the breaths that we take,
come slowly down.

are not a mistake.
But we regret so many things,
and you,
are my mistake.
