someone said that every star
stands for a person in our lives.
if that is true,
then my dear, every burning
and exploding star in my universe
stands for you.
If In The Morning You Are BreathingIf In The Morning You Are BreathingIf In The Morning You Are Breathing by rainonwednesday
Terror, Love, terror
Each night, asleep.
Fearing no bad dreams, no
Yet the unsettling is complete.
For if I close my eyes,
And you, you do not wake--
Wasting every breath I keep--
And you somehow have escaped;
This realm, this realm that holds your soul:
If in the morning you are not whole,
T'would be no miner leap:
I would with you withdraw--
And draw no breath
And make no speech.
So Love, here, hear me beseech:
Let us each settle down in gentle
Let our repose crawl and creep;
And when the morning finally dawns
Let the sunlight be replete:
With you, with you Love--
As both we know
Is no unaccomplished feat
Take the air, draw in the air
And forever it repeat.
