2 nights more
It took just two nights to get used to you
The twitches, breaths, and movements before I could fully sleep
Yet suddenly sleeping with you was as easy as breathing
slow and autonomic
Yet since you left, I dread the eight hours my body so desperately requires
Truth is, I haven’t had a decent sleep since.
I listen in dead silence.
In awe to hear the way you take breaths quicker before you go into a deep sleep.
In wait to hear your sleep murmurs.
Craving for you to pull me closer.
Aching to feel your heart beat against my back.
People tell me I need eight hours sleep to function properly
But they couldn’t be more wrong
I don’t need eight hours rest
I need two nights more.
🌼Picture is my own! Sorry for being so inactive!
//A love like that//
A love which sits in your throat like a piece of coal and soaks all the happiness. A love which makes you reckless, burns the insides of your mouth. It folds, collapses, rises again in flames when jealousy strikes. It hurts and it hurts back.
A love which screams, hits on the weakest spots, kisses other people in other rooms with other names. It is not coming home at night, it is fighting fires. It is hope and despair, a punch in the guts, a rising dizziness, a seasickness.
A love which breaks you down, makes you feeble, a love which implodes.
A love that hurts. .
Let it make you lose sleep because it’s that beautiful not because it’s painful.

Because maybe you’re very close to where you want to be, so you don’t want to lose hope to walk a mile further for your goal.
Sometimes I sit alone and wonder about how our story could have been different I would have still had you in my arms instead of my words. I do not like the feeling of pain every time although it makes me write better. I’m glad to know that your smile is alive and thus my sky has a reason to rain and tell me that even while we fall, we can still grow in that pain.
And I want to be a part of that power that consumes all the darkness around it and turns it into the most beautiful light which spread its power further in to the world.
