    Another sunrise,
    blue with hints of orange
    (the way you like it),
    and here I am
    with nothing but Folgers in my hand,
    the light shimmies through the blinds,
    an intriguing stranger
    much too directly beautiful to turn away,
    it stays,
    angles bending like
    your hands would across my body,
    it hits the only partially unmade bed
    reminding me of nights
    we fell asleep on carpets
    too busy laughing inside one another
    to turn our own covers back,
    the blackness in my cup
    matches the emptiness of this air,
    if only I were there, or you were here,
    near to me like
    the remnants of last nights rain
    drifting slowly, like groggy morning commuters,
    down this windowpane,
    I touch it with my hand,
    but feel the vibration of your laughter
    pealing through my skin,
    slowly peeling back the layers of my discontent
    I’m sad, but then again, I can smile,
    cause it’s not forever,
    very soon, we’ll be back together,
    sharing a warm embrace and “hello” kiss,
    catching up on the time we’ve missed
