Don’t leave me alone in your bedroom.
I will dig through your chest to your heart
searching for the very energy that causes each beat.
Everything is a piece of you untethered.
Don’t apologize, my silence is basking in you.
Walls cluttered with posters and photos
contain the passions that you never talked about.
Childhood still clings to a stuffed animal in the corner
and a tattered version of some kid’s book on a shelf.
The unmade bed speaks of a place of comfort.
Across the twisted blankets, pillows hold your dreams
and late night thoughts that I would love to know.
Favorite books tend to always be within arms reach.
Lying across the floor is school work pushed off the bed
at a late hour after finally succumbing to sleep.
The sides of the pages hold little doodles of a distracted mind.
Sometimes in these moments I’m too quiet.
Thats when the papers get thrown into a drawer.
Clothes jump from the floor to the empty basket
and blankets smothered to lie flat.
In that moment I just get a glimpse of you.
And you’re perfect.

I find it so easy to love people when I am left in their room. Its one of my favorite places to be.
