A Shiver in the Morning

i slowed myself down

to feel the trickle of you

beside my sleep

as five a.m. came and went

and when i mentioned my dream

your fingers floated in my hair

until i lost you again

a shiver in the morning

  5. Oh wow! Love what you did with this, Audrey. Those illusive dreams we have, wanting to hold on to what we can't keep.

  10. That separation anxiety is a two way street; plenty of men who did not stay the night fell asleep with their senses rekindled by the smell of your hair on their fingers, & the feel of your skin imprinted in the middle of their chest.
