Feeling again

Woke up in the night
Feeling alone

Despite some body’s elbow
Or knee
In my back

So many times
You held me
With just
Conversation and laughter

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

Can’t bring
To let this thought of you

What it might be like
To feel you
Near me
