I lay my head down

In preparation for sleep

But I know it won’t be

A sleep so deep

That I won’t have a dream

Of you and me

And I’ll awake soon later

With cold hands and feet 

Because without you

I’m just not as warm 

I’m just not the same

Inside and out

11.03.17 #2

It’s comfortable here,

In the lonely darkness.

A lone candle lit

Centered in the room.

A reminder of the light

That could be,

But never will

Because of me.
