groggy; sniffles from sickness, constant headache
minimal light shining threw bedroom window. The hustle and bustle of the world went on as I laided in bed; glued to the mattress; fever rising with each breath.
eyes demanding to be shut form exhaustion; I fight
but eventually I let my body win. hours pass; room feels intruded; my cotton door stays opened all the way. I show a face of confusion and I glance near my floor.
at my feet my laptop sits equipped with
an abundance of sweets and blankets from my youth. I sit amazed and cherished; I hear movement quietly in the hallway; I instantly spot him cooking. grimacing smiles evolves; my day goes on
months pass; he admits to his kindness;
the TV light eliminates our sillioets. laughter pours out of us; I remark that I knew; he tells me he figured; snickering turns into chuckles and our day goes on.
a few more weeks pass; our shared looks of wonder turned
into soft touches. coffee and hazel eyes became one. fingertips; coarse coal hair; respect and understanding ruled our world that know one knew existed.
university kept us grounded;
but eventually not even that could detach us. Soft kisses; stolen jackets; we realized how coordinated we lived. your space became mine; my old bed neglected for you stole its comfort.
I breathed; he breathed we soon became one
we fell in love blindly without a goal to adhere. at twilight's peak we agreed; and by the following morning even the sun knew our secret.
