Sometimes the bed just feels empty
I use my fingertips to explore the
perimeter of the full size mattress
and imagine how much love it’s
capable of containing
within its borders.

What was the day when I had spent
more days alone than together
in this bed?

They say you find someone when you
least expect it, when you’re not looking
and I cry bullshit, because we’re always

Always looking for someone
who can fill the other half
of the bed.
