Citrus aroma on smooth, hairless skin.

My legs are bare and they turn and twist.

I feel the cool caress of the sheets I’m in,

Tugging down my sleeves below my wrists.

Everything behind me is wrinkled from where I laid.

I glance forlornly at my pillow once more,

Smoothing down the soft blue spread.

Down the hall I pad, some coffee to pour,

All the while, still missing my bed.
