last night was the night i was going to leave you.

but you ran your finger along the back of my neck just the way i love it and called me lover whispering it like a prayer and you kissed my lips like i gave you the very breath you breathe.

we fell into each others arms as we had so many times before and i forgot everything else but the way it felt to be the only thing you wanted.

and then you snored through your nose just the way i hate it and you stole the covers like you were the only one in bed and this morning i awoke lying there in your cold empty room, alone.
