i saw you in the morning
when your eyes were still shut
by the membrane of dreams.

the blankets that
entangled you
provided barriers i’m only permitted
to wish away
not remove.

i’m content to simply
slide down beside you and rest your forehead
next to mine.
can i listen to your breathing?
right now it’s all i need to be content.

if you were to awaken now,
i’d not complain.
but nestled here beside you,
cotton sheets in between,
i’m thankful for every second i get,
