The traces of your fingertips shivered upon my skin. I would remember tonight the last cold December evening where the warm breaths of your sleeping figure were the blanket and embrace. Before I went to sleep later, I would pluck the strings of the old guitar you left to reminisce the way your lips moved along with the melodies they produced.
At this time of the hour, I was sure you had a body beside you—filling the empty spaces I vacated. I wanted to call you now, being careless if you were in the middle of doing it or you just finished, to tell you I was ready to answer the question you asked last time about where would I like to keep you in our darkest hours.
In my lungs, to breathe you in without breathing you out. In my veins, to keep you asleep for as long as I could. Right here, to lie down on the mattress with our fingers locked without speaking.
WORD COUNT: 167
