at night - when i’m trying to sleep but fail
i hold my pillow next to me -
i pretend it is the warmth of you.
the you i’ve never felt but long to know.
i want to sense your body close to mine -
touch your face -
your hair -
gaze into your eyes.
i want to explore all of you.
feel your rosed lips adjoin with mine -
your hands caressing me -
i want to sleep in your embrace.
i think about these things instead of counting sheep -
i just wish you were next to me.
