duvet - bed still 
without a sheet 
glasses in the sink that need to be rinsed out 
with a backlog of calls 
heels - party dresses all gather dust /

because i have been so caught up in our love /

it is time, for us both 
to step back 
to remember why we ever fell in love 

so I’m going to raise a glass and dance 
in my party dress /
