Don't turn away.
the warmth of you
against the chill of loneliness,
the refuge of your arms.
Cushion the pressures with the softness of your breast.
Silence the clamor with the small noises of your body.
Screen out the light with the fragrant lightness of your hair.
Enfold me within the security of you.
Make the world go away.
I offer treasures without value.
Ticket stubs, cold pizza in the morning,
a present because I am not proud of.
