Sleeping - Poem by TravisLee Williams

To repose,
In a bed;
Without her,
(Beside me.)
A terrible thing,
Is loathing while lying.

Be quiet
And still,
I hear the steps creak,
A footfall, a breath,
My heart skips a beat.

A vapor;
A phantom;
Tempestuous odor.
Her hair wafts-
Through the air,
An imagined aroma

And I am alone.
