to wake up to you sleeping peacefully is my sublime.
your arms wrapped around me,
whimpering quietly,
as you dream of your future.
one that involves me,
you mention when you awaken.
pulling me closer when you think I've strayed from you.
the slow, but perfect,
rise and fall of your chest.
not knowing that every breath you take,
you're breathing life into me.
i watch your skin flourish and know,
your heart is beating and mine beats for you.
not being around you,
i feel so lifeless.
so numb to the outside world,
and so welcoming to oblivion.
