After by Alex Pipes — Hello Poetry

Stumbled upon a poetry site called Hello Poetry. Loved this entry.

After by Alex Pipes — Hello Poetry.

I stand above my bed
And examine the damage.
Blankets this way and that
Pillows all over
Sheets tangled up around themselves.
Proof of something that 
Only hours ago
Left this place empty.
I take in the rubble
And breathe deeply.
I lower myself down to those 
Tangled sheets
And backwards bedspreads
And fill my lungs with you.
I pull them up around me
And close my eyes
And wish for this place to be 
The same kind of battleground
Again tomorrow.
