Sharing the bed

I couldn’t bear to think of you,

at nights when sleep denies,

but sitting always at my side,

the smell of you resides.

The bed had shrunk to hide me,

no room for you to share.

and yet your presence filled it;

in sheets of damp despair.

I couldn’t bare to feel you,

at night when sleep won’t come,

but sitting always at my side,

your form, in silence, hums.
