Alone again

Just because I want it

doesn’t mean I

Need it

To get through the day,

the night,

the internal strife

That bubbles up

when emotions fall

Left alone to Feel

Resisting the body’s urge to heal

through rest, relaxation,


Comfort beckons through the arms

of another

Yet alone again I am

Surrender to the space,

enveloped in arms of mine

Catharsis rolling down my bicep

Manicured fingers wrapping gently

around my ribs

Feathered head bed

Just a blip

In life

Just a moment

of strife

In a full life

Wrap the blanket around you, cuddle in.

You’ve got this.
