heart murmurs in the shape of your smile

i don’t know
if you
could hear me
as i lay
half asleep
telling you
every secret
i have ever
dreamt
declaring myself
as yours
into the aether
between states
of waking
when i finally
fully
shook the sleep
your name sat
sweetly upon
my lips
as the sparrows
sang softly
of a fool
in love
i wonder if
everyone
knows
i am yours
if the heady scent
of ocean mist
and wildflowers
intoxicates them
just being in
my presence
i don’t know
if you
could hear me
as i lay
tangled in sheets
calling out
for a kiss
to ease this
souldeep need
for you
curled up
in my arms
as the sparrows
serenade
the spectacle
of a fool
so deeply
and utterly
in love
as the sky
lightens
and my heart
sends secret codes
only yours
can ever hope
to decode.
