Too-small Bed

art-28

We’ve got a too-small bed

Too small for some that is

Some couples like a big bed

One that puts a river between them

 

But when words are hard

In our too-small bed

The space between us

Can feel like a river too

 

So I imagine, if our bed were large

And words were hard

That space would feel like an ocean

 

And there’s nothing more lonely

Than to be an ocean apart

When you can hear the one you long for

Only inches away

Breathing softly in the middle of the night
