Purple Sheets

My bed is empty; hollow empty
I miss you like you’ve gone forever
It’s been five hours
And I’m broken
It’ll be four days
Till I’m whole again, with you again
I want to feel that skin on skin
When we were sticky and clammy
And we roll together in the night
Barely awake. Barely asleep.
It’s neither, it’s nothing, it’s better than limbo, the place in
Between where good things go to get better…
It’s ours and it’s heaven
We’ll go there together
We’ll lose our bodies and find our souls
Kill our envy and seek compassion.
We can fight it all, you and me
Just come back home
Come back to bed
Lie awake with me
Find that place
And live our dream.
