//heights

they tremble
thinking the other won’t notice
terrified of what’s happening
and of what’s to come
because to love each other
means falling
and they’re both so scared
of heights

//your side of the bed

the only way
to keep something
forever
is to lose it,
your side of the bed
is cold
the dent of you
almost gone
but when i put my hand
on your pillow
at 5am
the birds outside
just starting to sing
then i feel you
right there
next to me
for just a moment
that happens to be
infinite
