ready to stop speaking

reading into the
exceptional way that we want to decompress
as far away as the mountains are from me
driving to meet you as fast as i allow myself
your wishes are what i want to deliver
taking the path i think would be fastest because
of course i want to be there soon
sitting next to you all afternoon while
the tea brews and the room fades from light
offering the option of doing a whole bunch of nothing
permanent peace that settles on you like a snowflake
shallow pools of ice that wink at you from outside
playing games with the winking shine of lights
ending each day with you is the best when
all we have to do is get under the warm blankets
keep the comfort level just right
inside the hiding place for the evening
nevermind how many things we have to do tomorrow
get over here and under the covers and it all fades away
