For Norah Jones (Poem)

I have written a series of (slightly sarcastic) love poems for Norah Jones - Here's number 44.

You’re amazing Nora!
your laughter takes away my walls
so I can see the sky
                                 at its best.

I don’t know what colour to be
to suit you.

don’t know if you'd break
your words
                once I have them.

don’t know if you’d
                              leave me
wishing for more sleep to dream
about our picnic in the sun 
on top of a hill so green
everything about it says GO! – move
into my lips Nora.

don’t let me wake  again
               with my tongue
buttering the pillow.
