Last night I couldn’t sleep

I wanted you warm against me

I wanted you on me!

I wanted to feel you all over my body…

But I couldn’t find you

If you were an island could I explore you?

I wish you were here, or I was there, or we were together anywhere

I just wanna be with you

When I miss you, it’s like every song I listen to is about you

You’re my favorite hook, to my favorite song, to my favorite concert

These words picked you

I just wrote them.

I keep wondering about what you wonder about

I get high on everything beautiful & your smile is an endless staircase

I can’t tell anymore if I’m dreaming or not

Sometimes I dream of a galvanometer in your chest & I press my lips to your neck, it dances with an electric current, rippling through my body bringing me back to life, back to reality.
