All During A Nap

I can't stop thinking about you.

Completely innocent, we fell asleep together.

 

Laying next to you

under a big blanket

our legs brushing against each other,

our faces less than a foot away.

 

Eyes closed

but I stole a few peeks...

to see your sleeping face,

it makes me smile,

you are peaceful.

 

We whisper

in our sleepy voices

to each other until we finally 

drift off

to sleep.

 

You twitch in your sleep

waking me a couple times

but I didn't mind:

its a quirk that makes you: you.

One of the endless things I love about you.

 

Falling asleep right there,

right next to you,

made me feel

safer than I ever have

as close as to peace as possible

truly beautiful.

I felt

a feeling I thought I lost a long time ago.

I might be
