Feeling again

Woke up in the night
Feeling alone
Again

Despite some body’s elbow
Or knee
In my back

So many times
You held me
With just
Conversation and laughter

Finally
Something inside me
Woke from dreaming
Memory full of
Your arms

Broke open
Pandora’s box

Exhausting myself
From wrapping
The idea of you
Around me
Like a blanket

It isn’t sensible
To lose sleep
Like this
Raising energy
When I should be at rest

Still
Can’t bring
Myself
To let this thought of you
Go

Daydreams
Rehearsing
What it might be like
To feel you
Near me
Now
