drifting away

i kissed my last bottle of beer
while you played with my fingers.
i run our farewell in my fuzzy memory bank,
i cannot seem to touch you back.

you rest your arm by my pelvis,
you feel me cringe,hear me sigh.
i look back at you;
that gaze saddens your face.
i think of the sea instead
and the mountain that sprawls on its belly.
this makes me long for you more
but less of every thing is what we have,
now that feeling you will soon be a postcard from yesterday.

i graze your lips with my mouth,
i lock in the tears,as
i know how tomorrow will be sober
and that when i wake up less you
the stars will die, the sky will pine for fire.

so, tonight i will kiss you my last
and let you be my ocean
engulf me with your passion
then let me float away.
