! NOW ! (sofa moments)

by CJ Maleney   Nov 20, 2017

!While you sleep!

Do you think that I don't watch you?
Do you realise I see everything?
Every twitch, every R.E.M.

The things of dreams!

All I've won and all I've lost
All that what once was and what could be?
Do you know?

I see it as you slumber!

In your semi sleep state!
My heartbeat slows and my breathing,
In sync with yours.

Sometimes your head upon me, my chest will rise and fall with your rhythm.

My breath shall not wake you.
I will be part of you.

Do you know?

I still rub your feet while you sleep?
You hate it when awakened,
But in sleep it soothes you.

!You slumber on!

Do you know I watch you as you slumber?

!You must! Surely you must!

Your eyelids closed,
Hiding your beautiful eyes.
Hiding your questions and your fears,
But those same fears cause that twitch.

I may not be here when you wake!
I may be hundreds of miles from you.
But I place a kiss upon your head before I must leave.

Only one.

I try not disturb your slumber.

    The first verse was a bit 'stalker-ish' Craig, but then turned into something so sweet. I love the way it's set out too, it reads beautifully :-) x
