Sleepless

I wait for you
Your colors to unfurl
The veil falling
Would your fingers brush my cheek til I awake
Your eyes watching til the dust of dreams left mine
You're a distance to close
Yet I cannot hold you
Cannot tell you
The words you must already know
As I, with no magic in me
Stand as near as you want
And as far away as you need
Love colors my heart
But colors bleed
For love is an impossible thing
I breath pain when you're with others
But pain doesn't hurt when you're near
Would you kiss my cheek, soft, eyes closed
To say, love is also this
The depths of tenderness
Though I long to kiss you fierce
What is it about you that transforms
Into the essence of fire
Bring your lips closer and linger
Breathe shared within each kiss
Melt into me
My arms
My own
Let me feel the press of your skin
Breath warm upon my chest
The dark of night drawing us closer
Eyes luminous
In the electric of straying touches
Bend my will to your deepest pleasure
Make me believe in dreams
Else, why wake me
