Cold and dull mornings

spent wishing you were back here

in this bed again.

unstirred by the rumbling skies,
tangled up in love.

the magic, in the mundane,
if we look for it.

and do it while we make up
for time spent apart.

when all of this is over?
Will you still be here?

our story doesn’t matter,
too often we’re wrong.

and let me bathe in your calm.
Breathe life into me.

to make mountains on my skin,
to move me like this?

make up for the lack of us,

hold me closer now.
