When I Knew

For Purple

I am removed from sleep

to find arms that want to be there.

The warmth that radiates from his chest

flows to the hand wrapped around my waist.


I, fighting the chill that emits from my toes,

draw closer to the furnace that embraces me.

His burn is welcome

as it travels across my skin.


I turn to find closed eyes and a mouth open

greeting the dreams that find him.

I can’t help but smile, thanking the universe for this.

For a face that lingers on mine.
