Did I mention I need you tonight.
just the raise and fall of your chest. quiet. maybe a joke here or there, a poem you’ve memorized by heart
but stillness would do.
Kisses on my face and forehead while you play in my hair.
But stillness would do
It would be nice to crawl inside you for awhile and rest. not forever but just for tonight.
I’ll be strong in the morning I promise.
I’ll go back to saving the world and shit
But for tonight I just need the warmth between your head and heart to remind me that I’m home.
That I won’t be eaten alive by the world or myself.
Stillness would do just fine.
