What I Know

in the dark
with the window open
I can smell the leaves
rotting on the forest floor
a crisp cool
washes over my face

in the silence
I hear you best
your soft snores
your heart beat
your breathing

you are saying
“I am here.”

when I curl into you
you know I want
your arms around me
without waking
you pull me close

“mmmmmm” means
“I love you.”
