[written July 3rd, 2009]

I’m praying that
when
blinking is unavoidable
we both don’t wake
in opposite
beds
in a cold sweat
that pastes itself
to our foreheads like
an apology
your hand’s
warmth
still hovering
like the ghostly
whisps of happiness
that cling to
the morning air

I’m hoping that
when
reality kicks in,
your presence
lingers
even longer than
the sweet
summer scent
that occupies
sticky air
and when all else
fails
I’ll have you
to fall back
on
like a strong tower
stable isn’t particularly
a bad thing

I’m realizing
now
that wish making
is a thing
of the past
stars have been
demoted
to mere decoration
for my unlikely
fairy tale
that jumped from
the pages
parachute intact
no crash landings
this time.
