wake for me

I climbed late into bed
softly so I wouldn’t wake you
and felt your warmth trapped in the covers

I rested my head on your chest
softly so I wouldn’t wake you
and felt it rise and fall in deep slumber

I tangled my legs between yours
softly so I wouldn’t wake you
but enough to know I claim you

I trailed my fingertips up and down your skin
softly so I wouldn’t wake you
but I looked up to see if I stirred you

I placed kisses trailing a path to your lips
softly so I wouldn’t wake you
but hard enough to make you
