I’d like to be what keeps you warm
instead of the coat
that hangs over your chair
but my arms aren’t permitted
to be wrapped around you.
I leave
and hope you miss me too.
I think you know
that I want to love you.
That this isn’t so fleeting.
At least, not as far as I can tell.
But I’ll keep wishing
for anyone else
to trade places with you.
To be within reach
because you and I together
is just a daydream.
Something that happens
only when I close my eyes.
A flower that hides its petals
until it’s the right time to bloom.
