I lay in the dark, tangled in warm blankets.
The softness against my face,
Almost as if my head on your chest.
The blanket becomes your cotton shirt,
I can’t sleep, my thoughts surround you.
The dark comforts me much like you do.
I feel so safe, nothing can hurt me in the dark.
Nothing when I’m with you.
Laying with my head on my pillow,
I wish to be in your arms.
I feel as though I am,
Your essence filling the faded light.
In the quiet I hear your breathing.
I feel you arms draped around me.
At night I feel you closer than I ever could before.
