i want to lay my head on your chest -- poetry by Kathryn Dew

i want to lay my head

on your chest

to feel the vibrations

of when you hum

and hear the steady

beating of your heart


i want to tell a joke

to see your grin and

listen to your laugh

which could lead ever

the most damned

man to salvation


i want to kiss you goodbye

and whisper against your

lips that we will see each

other soon as i

would move the earth

for us be together again
