There was a time
when we were new
that my heart burned
i lay awake
as you sleep
memorizing
in case i died
our bodies tangled
our skin was hot
our breath was fast
i felt you wet
you breathed me in
i let you
There was a time
when we slept
that my heart dreamed
i lay sleeping
as you sleep
memorizing
in case i woke
our bodies tangled
our skin was warm
our breath was deep
i felt you wet
you breathed me in
i let you
There was a time
when we woke
that my heart played
i lay dreaming
as you watched me
memorizing
in case you forgot
our bodies tangled
our skin was comfort
our breath was still
i felt you
you breathed on me
i let you
There was a time
when my heart burned
i lay waiting
as you forgot me
remembering
in case you returned
our bodies touched
our skin was familiar
our breath was fresh
i felt you
turn away
i let you
There was a time
when my heart ached
i lay begging
as you told me
ember-ing
in case you sparked
our bodies shyed
our skin cold
our breath was frozen
i lost you
far away
i let you
There was a time
when my heart rejoiced
i lay feeling
as you kissed me
blazing
in case you stayed
our bodies tangled
our skin was hot
our breath was fast
i felt you wet
you breathed me in
i let you
There was a time
when my heart shattered
i lay listening
as you were sleeping
knowing
you turned away
you said i'm sorry
you said i'm old now
you said i'm sleepy
our bodies turned
our skin was shivered
our breath was held
i felt you
finished
i felt my
tears burn
i felt you
breathe me out
i let you
