i am asleep on the beach
leave me here

i am asleep on the beach and
i can hear
the fire crackle
i can hear
the waves crashing into the sand
i can hear
your conversations
loud and far away

i am asleep on the beach
leave me here
not yet shivering under blankets
the sand pushing
under me

i am asleep on the beach
leave me here

one by one
my senses dwindle
until all i can hear
is the blood rushing in my ears
until all i can feel
is the way i bite my tongue
until all i can see
is the darker shadow
you cast when you lean over me

i am asleep on the beach
leave me here
i will be peaceful
until the end
