My First Words After Breakfast In Bed

I'm reminded of some
Beautiful memory that I never had.
A high contrast morning,
And I'm glad you're here to provide some clarity
For the disparity between last night and now,
The sincerity of a breath you let out
As you exhale through smiling teeth.
We burn our hands pulling these ropes
For the strokes of pleasure when it's cut.
I pulled up the sheets and you fell underneath,
I combed the whispers through your hair,
Now light as air, you fall asleep,
Just a couple more minutes
With our souls in a heap,
In tangles, so tender and mine.
It's been a while since December,
I just forget to remember
That forever is a very long time.
