Waiting

my chest tightening
like a rubber band
stretched beyond its limit

A message
simple as it is
tells me you are
thinking
only of me

The thousands of miles
between us
collapse and
I'm at your
bedside

you're sleeping
soundly
eyes rolling gently
I reach out to touch
your face

my eyes burn
trying to blink
away the tears
I find myself
staring into the halogen
desk lamp

again
