Sleepy Love

As I was half awake
and seeing you apply your makeup
I just
took in your beauty.
Even without it
you were breathtaking.
But as I
payed attention to your face
I looked at your lips.
My mind imagined
how soft and tender
they would feel.
And how it would magically feel to
Kiss them.
To have them
softly pressed against mine
I don't know what this is
but it's driving me crazy.
