An I love you and a goodnight,
I know tomorrow will be a better day if I wake up with you still here.
Gentle snoring and rain pattered windows speak our conversations in whispers while I think about your face.
When the sun rises in the morning, I'll give you my first thoughts -
How your eyes are the graves of old tales,
A poem so difficult to write because words, they would never be enough.
We keep reading poems of dead poets,
And wishing upon shooting stars.
I'm familiar with Romeo and Juliet. Let's not repeat that, shall we?
Let's fall far away from them,
Breathe life into our words, our poems, the ones I continue to write for you.
I've seen life strike me like lightening more than I can count but this time,
It let a flower bloom in my heart,
The kind that knows how cold it is, yet stands bright and strong in there.
My goodbyes to you are stuck in my throat, every single time.
I've always hated goodbyes more than the cheesy fairy tales.
If this will lead to the death of us, lets make it pretty, shall we?
If this is love,
Let's turn it into a poem where we form a home, I find a place in your palms admist your heartbeat,
where I can sing to the melodies of your breath.
We are life,
So let's turn it into art, the kind of masterpiece that stands grandest in front of the entire humanity.
I'll write you stories on your soft skin, but remember, some will cut deep, let's keep those closer to us because we both have seen pain right in it's face.
comforting in a way.
So let's talk.
Where you tell me about how sometimes you wake up in middle of the night because you had a nightmare,
Tell me the words you whisper to the sky during new beginnings and the end of many.
Tell me things that your heart speaks about to you and how on most days your mind never stays still.
If this is everything,
Tell me how to love you where existing doesn't hurt anymore.
If this is the real you,
Will you dance with me to happy together and all our favourite classics?
And if we are real,
Let's paint our blues to the brightest red that even the roses seem dull in comparison,
Let's burst together in passion,
reminding the world what art truly is.
