    hopeless romantic*


    remember that night
    I told you i couldn't sleep?
    I was thinking about you--
    i was thinking about all of you--
    i thought about your smile--
    your laugh--
    and that crooked little smirk you show--
    when i say something saracstic--

    i thought about the trivial things--
    they all amount to you--
    showing me that no detail is to be overlooked--

    everytime i see your face--
    i feel i owe you all the breath
    my lungs could muster up and push out
    upon the world--
    i owe you all of me--

    that night i couldn't sleep--

    showed many things--
    many many things--
    and...
    it showed me--
    that you on the brain--
    makes sleep impossible--

    i want to--
    coexist within all that you know--
    possess--
    and have come to love--

    then i just might get some rest.
