Please don't let this flop, because I actually put a lot of hard work into this. :)

FREE WRITING

3

the city is asleep but for us
your breath uneven
pressing against my collarbone
inhale, exhale
fingertips like ice on my neck
a flush painting my cheeks
like dawn painting the sky pink
sheets long gone
lost in the tangle of the night
we become a network
of what was
(and what could never be)
eyes closed, but you're awake
i know you are
and i fall asleep again in your arms
but i am cold when i wake
cold and alone
my blanket has mysteriously returned to my shoulders
and crepuscular rays ignite the empty mattress
or, rather, the lack of you
and you must have been there, you must
but the room echoes my loneliness
and maybe you were never there
For once, I actually wrote with a sharp meaning behind it. (I usually write with a meaning, but confusing and complex ones.) Let me know what you think! I'd love to hear feedback on this. Have a lovely day/night! <3

    "my blanket has mysteriously returned to my shoulders
    and crepuscular rays ignite the empty mattress" I can def see you looking more into your style and sort of embracing it because it is just so unique and beautiful, the tone in this is sort of melancholy. Beautiful, beautiful work as always :)
