I want you to bury me in blankets
And guard me against the dark
I want to dream
In every vivid color of you
I want to dance in stardust covered galaxies with you
I want to dream in the curve of your spine
I want you to sing me lullabies
And sweet nothings
I want to tell you jokes and
Drown in your laughter.
I want to marry you on Monday
And love you every day after.
I want to dream our life together
I want you to tell me
How much you love me.
I’ll whisper it back
I want to swim in your eyes
And fall asleep in your heartbeat
And drown in your hair.
I want you to die face down in my misery with me…
So I’ll never be alone again.
We could never die
You and I
I love this too much
Every petal of every flower
Every vivid chord of your voice
All curled up in your neck
I want all of you
With all of me.
I want to dream away my heartache
Because as hard as I dream
As hard as I wish
When I wake remembering
The many splendid, sordid things that you are
The vivid colors and subtle sighs
The drowning and living and laughing
As hard and as powerfully as I dream of your laugh
That’s all you are (in fact)
A lonely wish.
