three inches open to the rest of the world

that’s all we’ll expose of ourselves today

not hiding but covered in blankets,

we let the winter breeze dance its way down the wood flooring

and keep our feet entangled and warm

Holding you close to my chest, my heart, my breath

brushing the hairs on your forehead away,

I declare that I spoil you with love

and will keep doing the same

until our breaths sync

and serenity pours in.
