I can see you,
lying beside me.

I can hear you,
your heart’s rhythmical thumping.

I can reach out,
touch you, caress you,
running my fingers
over every imperfection.

I can taste your delicious scent,
tugging at my desires
deep within my soul.

I can feel you,
from the tips of your toes
to your ruffled, dishevelled hair,
your body’s impression
pressed into my skin.

You are every part of me,
as my own body is
until I wake, and you no longer
linger with me.

You float away,
gone, gone, gone,
only when I close my eyes
can I still remember you.

I am alone,
alone, sleeping on one side
of the bed

we once shared.
