Last night was wonderful. When I saw you keep running your fingers through your hair, I really got chills wishing they were part of my hands. I’ve never yearned for you so badly… well, that’s a lie. It’s always there, like a sleeping monster under everything. It just rumbled a little louder and rolled over with us last night.
I tried to pretend my monitor was just a box, and you were finally tangible, but I was too lazy to get off the bed. I think at one point, I woke up and groggily walked over and kissed your head before falling back to sleep. Or maybe I was dreaming. Even though I knew better, I was still disappointed by how cold and glassy you felt against my lips and fingertips. I can’t wait for that feeling to be replaced by supple skin and handfuls of your clothing with your smell washing over me. I can’t wait for me to wrap my arms around the back of your head to pull you into me, my nose buried in your hair, my fingers winding through and a leg curled and hooked around yours.
I’m happy you’re sleeping more, baby. I might even tame you enough to get you to sleep in the bed, but I think that’s a bit wishful. I’ll try, though ♥
I Need You,
