And I’m finally at peace

watching the calm

in the rise and fall

of your chest

as you lay

next to me

i realize

you are as

close to home

as I can ever

hope to reach


Good Morning

I haven’t forgotten those soft mornings

the ones that came before the chaos

when we slowly rose

with the sun filtering through the blinds

hot coffee wrapped in cold hands and

I remember you’d always tell me

how pretty my eyes were

and I’d roll them and tell you

I already knew

we’d laugh so hard

we woke up our roommates

remember how we never used to care

how mad it made them

we never cared about anything then

and while it lasted

those quiet mornings with you

were everything to me
