Waking after dreaming--
smell the coffee--
bacon fried...

Stretch of arms--
-yawn---
silent screaming...
(I did not know I was so tired...)

And had I felt your fingertips...
I swear, my mind, it would have slipped....

A crisp of sheet,
the smell of starch--
your exhale lingered
in the air...
with tears
I lick my lips of parch---

Another dawn with no sun there.

S'en,
I know how you feel. I'm ready to pass out for a few years, myself, free of memories.
