I know there are problems,
issues we haven't discussed,
it's not easy,
we don't talk like we should.
but I know we fall asleep holding each other.
I know we wake up fitting just right.
Your hand is in my hair
with all the tangles
of last nights angles,
& you're still holding me.
You're still wrapped around all my parts
You're still snoring by my ear,
& even though your lungs & mouth
won't let me sleep at all,
even if you put a band of chainsaws to shame,
I find it endearing.
I find you near me
is something that finds me,
& shakes awake something inside
I forgot was there.
