As you slipped into the subconscious, I lay wide awake looking at you,

I traced your features with my fingers and stole a kiss while you had no clue,

You looked peaceful and calm, every breath like a ripple in molten liquid,

No sign of the tough exterior just serenity covering you with softness so fluid,

I placed my hand on your chest and felt the rhythm of your heart beat,

My mind wandered in the labyrinth of your thoughts apprehensive of who I may meet,

These midnight quests are a desperate attempt to reach out and find your soul,

Don’t misconstrue my intentions, I don’t mean to invade, I just need it to make me whole..
