Quiet mind

I want

To peel back

The blankets

And climb into

Bed

With her

And sleep

Quietly

Without

The noise –

The constant damn noise inside my head that drones on and on and on about all the reasons to not rest.

I ache

Not only

For her,

But also for that

Rest

That comes

From a quiet mind

And silenced fear.

I yearn

To be

Able

To close my eyes

And wrap an arm

Around her

Body

And sleep

With only

Thoughts

Of her

Smell

And soft skin

At my fingertips

And lips.
