Sharing your bed

by BreakNeckPrincess

Shadows dance across your cheeks as you sleep

blue and lilac flowers bloom under your eyes

and a few stray curls cling to your brow

the night becomes you


There is no moon tonight- or maybe there is

i turn and face your own light, skin so white

as if a fire burns inside, igniting your bones

my own bones ache as i stare


i find myself awake again and again

i want you more in the night, in the dark

even my sleeping self cannot help but watch

as your chest rises and falls
