Velvet Shoes in the Rain
Soggy toes enclosed by soggy socks. 9 hours to go. My eyelids lower in disdain. I picture myself swallowed by a plump comforter and sandwiched between cartoon themed sheets. I look up to find my head resting on your chest. Your fingers : a slow tornado meandering my hair. Placidly planted with you as my pillow, I focus my ears to the clouds' weeping symphonies. Rain drops drumming onto glass. A branch scraping the window forces my mentality back to reality. I still hear the rain. Only I'm not in your bed, and neither are you. You're across the country. I'm at my desk. And my feet are still wet.
