Bedtime

Late at night after work
You come over and curl up in bed
With me held in your arms
And the lights turned down
We share our day
And right before you drift off
You ask what I missed the most
And though you can’t see me
I close my eyes and smile
Breathing you in
As I hold you even closer
Thinking of our little moment
Where your breath touches my skin
Your hand reaches around my chest
Your warmth radiates on me
Your subtle twitches rub against my legs
And that happy feeling bubbles from within
By now, I know you’re about to fall asleep
So, I kiss your lips
Keeping the answer to myself
Even though I may have just given it away

Never Meant To

It was never my intention to hurt you
I never meant to cause you pain
But now your tears weigh heavy on my chest
It’s like a ton of bricks pressing down
All I wanted was to tell you
How I truly felt inside
And though I may be clever with words
It is clear that I’m still learning
Cause my heart and mind are not one
For it’s true
It’s hard for me to open up
To show you how I really feel
I’ve always been afraid
But I know what I feel for you
And it kills me to see you this way
It was never my intention to hurt you
I never meant to cause you pain
But, now your tears weigh heavy on my chest
It’s like a ton of bricks pressing down
And though you ask for your space
I beg of you don’t push me away
Just tell me the truth
Help me learn
Give me your heart to mend
Because it was never my intention to hurt you
I never meant to cause you pain
Joy and laughter are the only things
That should grace your face
No tear of sadness to stain
So please don’t push me away
Please see my flaw
And help guide me on our way
