when i close my eyes

listen as I read when i close my eyes

should i tell you when i close my eyes

you follow

fingertips caressing the places

that become a thief to my breath

 

should i tell you when i close my eyes

you follow

pausing between the lyrics

to memorize how your ink tastes upon me

 

should i tell you when i close my eyes

you follow

your lips arousing blushes

stroking these tones

upon my muted canvas

 

should i tell you when i close my eyes

you follow

where behind your blues

a waxing moon licks

the beast within

 

should i tell you when i close my eyes

you follow

until i wake to breaths upon my nape

enraptured by your fluttering eyes

knowing you are still there

in that place when i close my eyes
