I could bottle ships
build up paper sails
climb aboard and float away forever
without you.

I could surf a feather tree
let the waves steal my breath
but only if you'll let me.

What if
If only
Only when
When are we
We will be
Be breathing

I could murder sleep,
become what I am not
listen until my ears run dry
and scream in ringing tones

I could give my heart,
with every breath left inside
to you.
But only if you'll take it.
