All day
I think of you.
Warm and inviting.
Soft in all the right places.
Strong where I need you.

Most beautiful specimen I’ve ever seen.
Every day, you tempt me…
Invite me back to your warmth.

You don’t judge me.
You never talk back.
You fulfill my every dream.

Alas, getting back to you
is harder than anything I’ve ever done.

It’s not you.
It’s me.

Too many commitments.
Too much work.
Too many obstacles.

But tonight, when we meet again,
I know you’ll be there.

Same as ever.

My warm, inviting bed.
