Sunlight

The sunlight streamed through

the slit in your curtain

and I was instantly awake

I knew you’d sleep in

so I tried not to wake you

as I pressed my lips

to your skin

Your breathing changed slightly

but your eyes stayed closed

I knew I’d stare at you all morning

so I got up

and slipped onto your balcony.

The warmth of the sunrise

was a perfect continuation

of the night we’d spent

entangled in each other

speaking softly

of our pasts

of how we ended up

here

with each other

so I sat staring at a mountain

instead of your face

just to distract myself temporarily

from the beauty I now

seem to know best.

-C.M.
