kissing the past

kissing the past goodbye
I toss and turn sleeplessly
sinking my head into the cloud
made from goose down
doesn’t help clearly
the snuggly softness of my duvet
is lacking your healing touch
and the splash of colors and patterns
throws back the echoes of your words
to induce sleep
I cover my eyes with the sleeping mask
but everything I see is you
and me
indulging you in the past
