Still not opening my eyes...

Posted Jan 17, 2008, 11:24:30 PM

It’s like false dawn…
The sensation that, while currently asleep,
I will soon awaken.

Maybe it’s a sound…
Like the rustle of leaves outside, as the breeze picks up with the warming air…
or the shift of someone next to me… stirring towards the surface of sleep like I am.

Or maybe it’s a scent…
Coffee set to automatic brew… bacon frying three fucking houses away…
Even your sleep stale breath as you and I both yawn… and we embrace blindly, and we kiss, uncaring…
that we smell like sweat… that dogs are barking loudly, down the street…

We touch so desperately at these times…
Fingers tracing familiar lines… mouths closing over anticipated tender points…
Still not opening our eyes…

Still not opening my eyes...
Because I don’t want to lose this…
Because… even though I know it’s not real, I can make this last… just long enough…

Because it’s like false dawn…
Even when I do finally open my eyes…
I know it’ll still be dark.

 

For a contest in Y!Gallery, thought I'd drop it here too, even though only like 2 people will ever see it.. hahahah.here ya go, ya lucky two.
