I wonder
What it would be like
To have you here
With me
Legs entangled with mine
hand splayed across my middle
Your sweet breath on my neck
It would be

The moon would have her song and
The Tides wouldn’t have
To run dry
The sun needn’t ever come up
We could spend eternity, in that wretched languor,
you and I,
The symphonies of nature could end in madness
The world, as we know it, could disintegrate
The oceans could drown it all, till everything alive was dead,
We’d lay there together, you and I,
I’d be drowned in you, instead

I think I am already,
No wonder I can’t get you out

The spiderweb cracks across my roof
tell me stories,
of all they’ve seen
They know the hours
I wrote
Waking to dawns
Through nights
That have never been
The patterns replicate, like inky shadows
Etched permanently
Part of my skin
Images burned
behind my eyelids
In the hollows
Of my eyes
The glitters of
Maddening intensity
Cracks, through which
the surviving insanity
seeps through
Craving the dark
And in the dark
Come alive
When they reach

And I own nothing
And I am nothing
Except that one
Singular possession
Till my last breath I’ll keep
And you’re the last thing
on my mind
when my head
hits the pillow

Is it any wonder then,
That I can’t sleep?

    So many words Iโ€™ve read tonight
    I think my brain is stuffed
    But Iโ€™m drunk off the words you write
    I just canโ€™t drink enough
    Iโ€™ve drank so mu
    I mean Iโ€™ve read
    I think
    Your words are stronger than my drink
    Itโ€™s amazing what you do
    Page one says youโ€™re beautiful
    I canโ€™t wait for page two.
