Just the sounds of being alive
Feeling the same thing
Out of reality, it seems

Just the sounds of our breathing
Together as one
Let's me know it's more than a dream

With my head on your chest
I can hear your heart
The warmth of a smile lights up my face
Your heart is beating for me
And mine for only you

I'm spinning
In sweat drenched clothes
And dirty blankets
But we don't care

We don't even need the drugs
Just to hold your hand in mine
Our bodies pressed together
Just to hear your breathing

You make me feel so connected

My teeth shiver and my skin quivers
Wanting to be so close
Has never scared me so much before

deep breaths
this is a really good piece...I particularly liked the 'I'm spinning' stanza...for some reason, the last line didn't speak to me as loudly as the rest...I think I'd prefer it to end on a more contented note...but that's just me :)...well done.

I agree....
I agree about the last line. I wasn't sure how to end it, so I just left it like that. I'm not satisfied with that and am planning to edit it soon.
