Visage Pillows

I lay me down and look across the vastness of this bed

and wonder why you’re not here

Looking back across at me

“I love you I love you I love you

That’s all I wanted to say”

The Beatles remind me that love is all I need

and it was

but we lose ourselves to this sense of want

until there’s nothing left of need

Need needs to go, across the sea

I can’t imagine myself with anybody else but you

No one else makes any sense to me

With sleepy curtains drawn across my eyes

I peer at your dreaming face those sleeping eyes

As I nestle up to you too many hours too late

I seem to recall you in my life

I seem to recall you being the love of that life

All I want to do is be inside you

and never leave

I fall through the earthened floor to who knows where

I can feel only pillows where once I held your bod

grabbed around your little torso

with one arm

with one hand I’m grabbing at you again

hotter than ever

and yet hollower
