“At my most beautiful,
I count your eyelashes secretly.
With every one,
whisper I love you.”

Mornings (I miss you)
by me

Those mornings in the cliffs
ocean sneaking in through the open window
waking to find you watching me sleep

For hours we’d say nothing
becoming just a tangled mess of hair and skin
your body warming mine

Breathing was an after thought
language and explanations unnecessary
everything falling into place

That line creased between your eyes
how many wishes did I make on it
while you held my wide eyed gaze

Just before words would break the spell
after you kissed poetry into the curve of my spine
my eyes offering my name in yours

I wonder sometimes when you wake now
in the arms of someone new
do you feel me reach inside your memory

At My Most Beautiful :: R.E.M.
