twelve hours

i can see
my breath
laying in bed
twelve hours
without power.

i can see you
when i
close my eyes
ignoring the cold
for a kiss from you.

my eyelids
feel heavy
under these blankets
daydreaming
about you.

there are days
the world feels
out to get me
if it can go bad
it will.

but when i
close my eyes
you are there
and i remember
it’s not so bad.
