you had me right in between
the morning light and a dream
that broke like a wave through the blinds
back where I belong

and the half-mess around the room, scattered
like the hours we stumble on to get around

you wave your hand through the air
playing with your hair in a mirror
space around us is clear
time is on the other side

in the morning you fall into yourself
it’s the perfect place to stay with someone else

pour the coffee into
a passing moment for two
shadows chasing the clock
hold my hand and it’ll stop

what we can’t dream or set aside will fade
but I’m taking you with me into the day
