wake up and smell the coffee

i miss you so i trace the same patterns

on my skin

as you did

two nights ago

but the distance between the two

and the difference between the two stretches out

too far 

you are so far from home now

your scent seeps through my skin

as i huddle further in my sheets

sleeping through yet another alarm

and your face dissolves into the milky swirls of my coffee

but you linger still in the fronds of my mind
