In the dark

Written by: Jenna Bird

It’s dark
But you’re light and warm
Your shirt on the floor 
My head on your chest 
Your heartbeat 
Confusing but soothing
Everything slows down 
Time stands still
Your breath on my neck
I stay awake and watch you sleep
You open your eyes 
And you push me away again 
Then you leave me 
Suddenly it’s cold and lonely
Here in the dark
Why did you have to go?
