This past week
I’ve fallen asleep
Holding on to the dress I wore
The last time we met
The last time we slept, together

Somehow, I can breath
In peace, with it
In it
A wisp of your fragrance
Still lingers

I realize that it’s
More than
A little pathetic
That I can’t even dream
Without you

And true,
It’s a poor imitation
Of your presence
But it’ll do
It’ll do

  2. Wisp of fragrance is the second best thing when in solitude.
