Sleeping Together And Then Leaving - Poem by RIC BASTASA

what is a cold
morning to
a warm blanket?

what is warm blanket
to our
warmer bodies?

but love is always
warmer than
everything that is
cold and

Time lurks and
silent as a tiptoe
slowly takes
everything away

leaving the blanket

colder than the

that keeps the tears
and grows
those fears
