I wrote this the other day in a few minutes...It's rough, and will need some work. But I thought I'd post it for now....
No covers to be found, a body of white
Lying beside me with dew-dampened skin
Reflecting moonlight. No sound to be heard but your breaths.
Radiant breaths that dampen your lips, and I long to kiss,
But I hesitate for want of not waking you.
You sigh in your wonderland, rhythm of two loves:
Yours and mine, mingling in the dark;
What I wouldn’t give to freeze us in this moment.
As your mind drifts off into dreams unknown to me,
I watch your fluttering eyelashes:
Crows on the tinted horizon, silhouetted in motion,
Sliver of white, the moon breaking through the dark
Like God’s eternal thumbnail gracing the sky.
I know when you open those eyes in the morning,
I will see the green of the grass in which we have lain,
The tint of the water of the lake we’ve swam,
The cool blue night in your ocean-eyes…
But for now, now it’s time to fade out like stars,
Our flames burning to their extinction
Into sleep, into eternity, forever.
