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

I remember

DSC_0641

I remember
How the skies stretched above my head
How light and high it felt
That winter
I remember
How cold it was
How blue the snow was
How loud and red you laughed
I remember
The way clouds of milk would form
In your cup of tea
I remember
The sound of your tears dropping
Staining the tablecloth
I remember
How blue my fingers were
How we all tried to sleep
In the dark
I remember
How alone and happy I felt
That night
How the icy waves would crash
Around us
How blue the music sounded
That night
I remember
How my voice echoed in the empty hallways
How powerful it made me feel
I remember
There was yellow in the air
I raced happiness until it rained
I was a crazy child
I remember
How I whispered to you at night
How it faded into silence
I remember
How colourful it was
How beautiful it is
To fall in love with you

Your Name

tumblr_n5bnsdhJi01subvnlo1_500
Your name flows out of the tap
It hides in the steam
It escapes my fingers

Your name rings with every drop of rain
It is written on windows and mirrors

Your name is easier to whisper

Your name smoothed the memory
Your name is the weight we carry
Your name has become our silence

Your name knocks softly on doors
And it brushes my hand
And it becomes easy
And it loses meaning
As I’m losing you
