Umbral Hour

Some nights
I lay awake
and my lips yearn
to drink deeply from yours.

Other nights
I lay awake
and my fingers long to trace
the freckles that dot your skin
like stars in the night sky.

But every night
I lay awake
and my heart aches
to hold you in my arms
and feel the thunder
of your heart
in the hopes
that I might finally rest.
