Long Days

my thoughts turn with the time of day
are you in bed, awake?
perhaps thinking of me 
as i am of you  

i twist the tap - 
thoughts drain away 
as i prepare a late lunch 
turn over
sweep the crumbs from my front.

this excerpt of a poem is part of a set of poems that I first wrote when I was maybe 17/18 about the romantic relationship I was in at that time (Spoilers, it wasn’t that romantic) I’m sharing these previously unpublished poems with my Patreon subscribers over the next couple of weeks.
