my heart looks like your heart

the prayer ...

lying on top of you
my chest pressing against yours
i float in your breath and listen to you sleep 
one of your hands lost in 
and tangled up in 
my overflowing hair 
your other hand tangled up with mine
our fingers laced up quietly together
and resting on my tattooed hip 

i lay my head down and feel the rhythm of your heart beating against my throat
and i hear your breathing 
warm and noisy over my ear
i remain still and silent 
inhaling the smell of you
exhaling love for you 
and i cannot sleep
not because of the noise
and not because of our body heat
but because i don't want to miss the moment ...
the prayer ...
the gratitude ...
