I Want You To Wake With Me

I want you to wake with me

In the place where salt air

Floats through our open window

And soaks into our thirsty skin

The place where our minds

Are as tangled together

As our bodies

Beneath the worn sheets

Where I find refuge in 

The tremble of your breath

Against mine

 
I want you to wake with me 

In the place where clocks

Do not exist, and time

Steals naught away

 
The place where fear

Loses grip on my heart

With each moment 

Your ravenous hands

Take grip of my flesh 

No longer falling away

But complete

 
I want you to wake with me 

In the place where the pieces 

Of our glorious madness

At once  make perfect sense

 
The place where you

Will trace gentle lines 

Over the scars I hide 

And I will kiss healing

Into the wounds you deny

And our skin will weep 

No more

 
I want you to wake with me

In the place we will never leave  

And here we will make our home

Here we will stay.
