my love–

heart

i wish i could convey
the difficulty in sleeping
without you. you know

how easily i get cold.
my feet are ice now
without your legs

to warm them. i hope
my place on the left
side of the bed

is being kept safe by
two small bodies.
i hope you hold them

as i type and think
of me. i hope you feel
me thinking of you.

i hope you know how hard
it is to be away even
for something i love–

poetry does not love me
like you love me — she does not
always kiss back or respond

to my wanting. yet still
i am here with her
instead there with you…

i hope you know
you are more than the
warmth of my nights. i hope

you know you are my heart.
i hope you know how much
i love you.
