Resting Place

Sometimes I wish

I could climb into the

space between your fingers,

let my legs swing against

your palm, my heels

hitting your love line –

a heartbeat one moment,

metronome the next –

and when I’m ready to sleep,

roll into palm centre and

let your fingers curl over me,

a blanket up to my chin

to stop sad thoughts getting in.
