“Complete” by Haley Morgan McKinnon

complete

 

is it too much for me to ask the sun

to stay here forever

 

i do not want the cold

or the dark

 

stay

and sink my body into warmth

 

is it too much for me to ask you

to stay here forever

 

i do not want the cold

or the dark

 

stay

and sink my body into warmth with you
