a moment to linger

I wasn't really asleep
but kept my eyes tightly shut,
playing rebel to the lingering moment
as you sat up
to pull on your jeans.

to feel you once more
is all I needed,
all I wanted,
but it was time.

we knew yesterday
this would be
the last
you would feel my skin
the touch of my lips
or hear our rapid heartbeats in unison.

when the door shut
behind your footsteps

the morning light
pierced my eyes
not letting me
shed a single tear.
