White Noise

White Flowers (Google Images)

I want to fall asleep with you,

our body’s entwined

my head under yours

tucked in the crook of your shoulder

inhaling your scent from the base of your throat.

I want to fall asleep with you.

My legs thrown over yours,

my hand shaping your face gently as we speak about the future and our dreams.

My eyes sink lower as I listen to your voice.

I want to fall asleep with you

and let the sounds of our body push the world away.

I want to fall asleep with you

and let

the sounds of our breathing

the sounds of our sighs

the sounds of our love. 

become the white noise

to drown out the world.
