i am remembering…

in the stiffness of early morning, i feel your hands

slowly reaching, warm around my waist.

you pull me closer and in my slumber i fold,

giving into your gesture. bodies twisted in blankets and pillows,

i feel you closer to me now.

breath warm against my neck as we fit together like two spoons in a drawer.

and you wrap one arm around my hip

and down through my thighs.

the warmth building between us as the air escapes,

leaks out between my lips.

and as you glide your fingertips from the small of my back straight up my spine,

it waves in the motion,

like a cat’s back, pet for the first time in days.

and you leaned into me.

…you loved me that morning.  and my toes curl in the memory.

quiet moments find me soft in the stream of lights, forcing their presence through the cracks in the blinds.

sleepy eyes turned watery eyes, dreamy eyes falling quietly back asleep. in the comfort of your security blanket. arms wrapped perfectly around my waist, up around my chest, your hand holds me tight.

the morning brings a slight chill that comes in the beginning,

and with our bodies close, you keep me warmer still..

in my dreams i find you again, with the sunny day broken and spread across you. and like the ocean’s breeze, you move me..

straight to the head.

blurry blind.

forgetful fool. you should remember better. like a warm coat, it feeds.

instead you walk blind. talking and talking to everyone but you . delirious and drunk in the moment. a stupid movement.

a numbing drive home.

an empty love nest. with a warm glowing, solitude.

and i want nothing but a click of the front door lock,

and nothing but me to be alone for just a while longer.

in my head.

pulled out of the wreck.

forgetful fool. you should remember better. like a warm coat, it feeds.

instead you walk blind. talking and talking..

delirious and drunk.

in the moment. with a warm glow, solitude.
