it happens
sometimes
night comes and sleep doesn't
where is she hiding?
why does she tease
with
heavy eyes and shallow breath
a snore
a raspy throaty snuffling
brings me back from the verge
and now
I sit up and breathe and stretch
lay down again
clock counting in minutes
12:44
12:47
12:52
is that all?
has time stood still?
is something left undone?
brain races
and slows again
sound of a heartbeat within the pillow
is it mine?
am I too hot?
will this side be better?
toss turn turn toss
flip pillow to the cooler side
yawn
then try again
gentle thoughts
deep full breaths
mind a clean slate
heavy eyes and shallow breath
letting go
fingertips twitch
leg jerks
and
sometimes
it happens
