Last night you left me and slept by Rumi

Header PostFeaturedImage 05

Still sick, so I canceled my plans. I don’t feel like seeing people anyhow, because of what happened yesterday. I think I will go lie down and bury my head under a sea of pillows. Dream, maybe. Letting this poem lull me to sleep:

Last night you left me and slept
Rumi

Last night you left me and slept
your own deep sleep. Tonight you turn
and turn. I say,
‘You and I will be together
till the universe dissolves.’
You mumble back things you thought of
when you were drunk.
