I awoke in the middle of the night, she was laying there facing me. I reached up and brushed back a few stray hairs from her face, and ran my fingers through her undercut. I pulled her head down, and Kissed her forehead. She rolled over, and I became her big spoon once again. I slipped an arm along her waist, breathing in the scent of her curly chestnut hair. I lightly kissed the back of her head, and pulled her in tighter, I leaned down and put my forehead to her shoulder and closed my eyes. I laid like this for a moment, feeling her heartbeat, feeling the rise and the fall of her body with each breath. It was perfect. Suddenly, I awoke on my side, shivering. The early morning moonlight streaming through the window, My arm slipped under the pillow where her head had once lain. A cold, oblong, bag of feathers sat lifeless where her body full of fire and life had been, just a few short nights ago. I closed my eyes and placed my hand on the pillow next to me, trying to use every ounce of my strength to turn it into you. I clenched my jaw and held shut my eyes, hoping that I could pull you here with all of my heart…. I slowly drifted back to sleep, in my Empty twin sized bed.
