This Morning - Poem by Zach Stahle

I try to force my eyes open
the sunlight glares into my bedroom through the bare window
my curtains must've been torn down during last nights fun
the glare bounces around the white walls of the room
its so bright
too bright
I look around to see the mess my friends and I have made in our debotched celebration
I groan and lay my head back down on the pillow, trying to remember the events that took place
I turn my head to see you lying with me
you're such a lovely mess
I'm so relieved that it's you next to me
I sigh delightfully
your eyes slowly open
you smile
I come closer and give you a kiss
you put your head on my chest
we just lay there
with pounding headaches, and sick stomachs we just lay there
in a bliss
the nagging worry of the world... it doesn't matter here
the ice caps aren't melting here
school doesn't matter
its hours away
What matters is now

Surrounded by empty bottles and cans
drenched in the afternoon sun
and basking in this feeling
we just lay together
staring into each others eyes
I wrap my arms around you even tighter
we don't speak...
because our love is so much louder than words...
we know that we're doing the best with what we have...
and it's love.

    This is a worthy read for almost any day or time. There really isn't much here.
    But what is here, is very big.
