Don't Wanna Sleep

Lift me up and pull me in-

I don't wanna sleep

Shift with me and taste my skin

I'm not yet ready for bed.

The mattress is an entire universe that

gravitates our bodies

and your eyes are the stars as they hold mine.

Don't look away-

I need the stars, I'm not tired yet

keep me up;

you are the sky reflecting my ocean

and we're both shades of blue orbiting

and holding it all on place--

am I the sky now?

I feel like I'm drowning in your wake

turning and returning,

a dance on black sheets

as our skin seeks the others

and finds

and awakens

and we're turning again love

I don't wanna sleep
