inhaled

you are the warm silent space
that has been breathed
into the nook of my blanket
and two nights ago
i inhaled
and you coated my lungs

and you coated my lungs
and i wheezeled you out
with deep sighs
and shallow coughs
i inhaled
and lost your scent

and lost your scent
in the smell of fall
by the burn of twigs
and the waves of smoke
i inhaled
and i didn’t choke

and i didn’t choke
on the memory
of you in my bed
when you touched my hair
i inhaled
and then i awoke

and then i awoke
to an empty bed
and i closed my eyes
and wished you here
i inhaled & i inhaled & inhaled
but you did not appear
