Read Cotton Poems Online



You laid asleep as I showered your body 
in cotton candy kisses
A whispered I'm sorry
for the row we had just before bed
My anxiety creeping in
with each rise of your chest
Heavy with realization
that this fall might be our last
I listen to your snores
counting seconds in silence
Memorizing each movement 
preparing for an imaginary pop quiz
Your love is still my mountain
steady and strong
