you lie next to me so peacefully

breathing

in

out

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

in

out

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,

wow.
