Kent – Utan dina andetag

 

I know you’re sleeping

I feel the warmth of your skin

Just the smell makes me weak

But I don’t dare to wake you

 

I would give you

Everything you pointed at

But only when you’re not listening

Do I dare to say it

 

I cannot even walk

Without your air in my lungs

I cannot even stand

When you’re not watching

 

And transparent, grey

I become

Without your breath

 

My time has stopped

Under your eyelids

Dreams flutter

Inside you are light as a feather

 

Without a sound

My heart in your hand

I’ve lost my language

It’s caught up in your hair

 

I cannot even walk

Without your air in my lungs

I cannot even stand

When you’re not watching

And colorless as a tear

I become

Without your breath

 

What would I be

Without your breath
