you lie next to me so peacefully
probably dreaming, i find myself
wondering what about
i woke up from a sound coming from
the windowsill with the dim street
lamps and starry night sky.
my heart is wound up with butterflies
and they are tangled so tightly inside
my chest. and while you sleep
ever so peacefully just know that
i am falling for you slowly
i’m falling for the way you sleep
the way you breath
the way you say it without
saying a single word.
you wake in the morning.
i run my fingers through your hair
and there, at that exact moment
there it is.
i fall for you all over again,
