1:12am 6/8/14

she is asleep right now
her head resting on my shoulder
and I am thinking about morning
and how far away it is
and how happy I am about that
and how badly I want to kiss her awake
but she is such a tender sleeping body
that I don’t dare to even take a deep breath
as to stir her
I will lie awake
staring at the ceiling
until the morning light fades in
feeling completely exhausted
from falling in love
with the tiredness buried
inside of my bones
