That gap was too large, yes indeed. Won't happen again!
In the morning
I remember sneaking in at 5am
and hours on my feet replayed through my soles
with every beat of aching blood.
I remember how you slipped, gentle from sleep
and rubbed the life away back into them
with cooling hands, perched
at the end of the bed. My secret tears
faded to sleep except for the crystals
now I wake. And my feet, oh my feet,
on pillows; your head on the bed.
