with your eyes tightly shut and
your hands gripping the sheets
and i always lie awake wondering
why your hands would be around the sheets
and not me

WoW Your poem is so short but somehow you found the way to say all what you need to say in such few and the least words you can use. It's very deep, sad but also very clear. I loved it ;) You certainly deserved a MAG choice. Keep up the great work. Thanks for sharing this.
