allthesenses

it just dawned on me
that if
i was to write a song
about you
and if i could
write songs
i would
but
if i was to write
a song about
you
at some point
in it
i’d sing a line
and then whisper repeat it
because
i’m lying here
next to you
sleeping
and
i’m glancing at
balled up sheets
telling a story
of the passion
we just shared
we just shared
and
hating a little
that
the ticking of the
ceiling fan
is no replacement
for the echos
of your
sounds
i’m inhaling deeply
and realizing
with absolute certainty
that
i never feel
more comfortable
in my own skin
than when it
smells like you
the
flickering
streetlights are casting
two pale stripes
across your back
without permission
but
you look
so
peaceful
so
comfortable
dark hair
slightly covering your
dark eyes
it makes me smile
you look
so
content
so
oh
fuck it
i have to wake you up again

  1. For some reason, I always find the idea of one person watching the other sleep to be a little creepy. I like the doodle, though. Especially the last line.

  2. this is really not helping my self-justification that it’s okay to be single and sleep alone because I get more room in the bed. I’d much rather this scenerio than mine.

  3. I have you all figured out Peter.

    You’re either the most incredible guy in the universe and totally killer in bed, or just a total douchebag who lures the ladies in with your mad word doodling skills.

    Until I decide which one you are, I’m holding onto my virtual panties.
