I watch your hand as if to distract myself
From your face only inches from mine
Because this time I'm afraid you'll wake up
And see me just…staring

But I look anyway

There is something in you
It takes my breath away it's just so
Light

Like boiling a cup of sunshine
Ravenously drinking in it's taste underneath my tongue
Feeling the concentrated rays build up in my bloodstream
La la la-ing things inside of me

And there is something clumsy
About this fragmented way I'm breathing
Taking in the way your knee is almost touching
Nearly brushing against my leg

(you're such a tease when you sleep)
