I Close My Eyes Tight

I feel her hand move slowly across my back, as I lie in the dark, she sends a shiver down my spine.

Her hand moves slowly on to my chest as I feel her cold legs wrap around mine.

She whispers in my ear, “I love you, Michael.”

A tear rolls down my cheek and onto the bed sheets.

I close my eyes tight, and say to myself, please go away, please go away.

She is unaware that she doesn’t belong here any more, but I cannot tell her that, it’ll break her heart.

I will keep her company until the sun rises. When I wake, she will be gone. But I know she will be back again tomorrow; she always is.
