last night i dreamed that you left rose petalsMature

last night, i dreamed that you left rose petals
all down the hallway, as if I’d somehow forgotten
where our bed was, but I smiled as I followed them.
your eyes reflected the candlelight and when I woke up,
all I could see was the warmth trapped in your pupils,
beckoning me back to sleep, promising me you’d make up
for the miles in between our bodies.  when I crawl back
under the covers, hug my pillow to my chest and convince myself
I can still smell you on the sheets, I can’t make myself believe
your touch is real enough for me.  I wish you were here with me.

The End
