Summary: Asleep in my arms

Notes: This series is written with the ent_musing Mal and Jonathan in mind, but the thoughts and the smile transcend those particular muses.


I wake in the small hours and watch you sleep, worries etched into your face by day smoothed by the gentleness of night.

That quirk of your lips, which makes your smirk so endearing, sleeps with you… releasing your smile.

Your grey eyes, lidded now, still flicker… eyelashes brushing your cheeks as you enjoy some unknown dream.

Those hands that hours ago caressed me, trailing fire and need, lie quiet, still… their night's work well done…

Your heartbeat slow and steady, your breathing calm… no trace remains of the ragged breaths, the pounding heart from love's climax…

except your smile.
