i lay here stunned, the outline of your body is still imprinted on my sheets, and the smell of your skin still lingers beneath the covers. i lay here struggling to breathe, saturated by memories of you. i will close my eyes, and escape from my thoughts. i will let go of my guilt, my angst, my fears, my worries, and the endless problems racing across my mind. sleep sweet my dearest, i'll see you in my dreams.
