1:10 am

I couldn’t sleep
all I could think of
or imagine is
a better
word
was waking up
to sunshine
pouring through the
windows
and the sheer
white
curtains
as I rolled onto
my side
and saw your back
rising
and falling
as you breathed
deep with
sleep
and I could lean
over
and kiss your
skin beneath
my lips
and it was warm
from cotton sheets
and winter duvets
and autumn sunlight
and my love for you
and I could trace
every
freckle
along your shoulder blades
until I found
the constellation
I was searching for.
