i want to know you

i want to know you
at five in the morning
the sky still dim,
the world untouched
with your eyes shut tight
engrossed in a dream
i want to know you then

i want to know you
at eleven thirty AM
as you sip a cup of tea
(sweet, your favorite)
with your nose in a novel
(the kind you can’t put down)
i want to know you then

i want to know you
at six in the evening
flipping through channels
your feet on the coffee table
with your tousled hair
(still incredibly flawless)
i want to know you then

i want to know you
at ten thirty at night
the sky lined with stars
like the freckles on your face
with a smile of exhaustion
and toothpaste kisses
i want to know you then
