it wasn’t until

she left that he realized

he needed her most. 

In summer night warmth, 

next to her, he lies awake, 

while she’s in deep sleep. 

Surprising cold fronts

Came from both the weather and 

from within her heart.

Lets lock ourselves in, 

Lay in our underwear and 

Listen to Sadé.

When I thought she was
Taking a picture of me,
‘Twas just a selfie.
