I can photograph you while you sleep (idea)
|I would hang the [picture on my wall]; it would have to be in [black and white], too, because I remember details better when they're [monochromatic].|
But instead [I just stare, and try to memorize], every night while you lie sleeping, tangled in the sheets and your own web of fantasies. I hope they aren't nightmares.
I wouldn't take a picture of you [sleeping], at least, not with a camera. You look so serene, and quiet - not worried, like you always are, about me or [college] or [life] in general. Knowing that I'm one of the [lucky] few to have seen that face, [smoothed of all its hidden demons]...capturing that on film would be [betrayal].
Eventually I'll finish [burning every detail into my fingertips]. Until then, [keep on sleeping].
