parallel universes

In a parallel universe
We kiss in a room
With yellow curtains

In a parallel universe
I miss you by a day
And my pillows are dry

In a parallel universe
You tell me you love me
I never walk away

lately

I like to play
With spider webs in the dark
Soft tickles and harsh bites
I tend to forget lately
What the frame looks like
Behind closed eyes
I listen to the trickle on the window ledge
Kiss my lips in the shower
My damp hair in the morning
My pillows aren’t soft
or cool enough to soothe
My burnt fingertips

blind lovers we are

mould me
retrace my spine
to fit the gentle curve
formed by your legs
and arms
touch me
read my skin with your hands
blind lovers we are
following the trail of desire on each other’s
lips
my love
i never stopped being yours

sink in, love

I wake up
You fall asleep

meet me at the beach
where dreams crawl to the shore
I will caress your cheek
as I come out the waters

Don’t wake me up
I wonder when I
lost you
to the night’s lullabies

sink in, love

tender, tender, tender

And I remember
you
forget me
