The scent of my skin

I have been waiting for you the all night long

You did not know

Under the light of the street lamp

I was staring at my fingers

Trying to fix myself

I was not waiting for you anymore

But I still had hope

Is that so different ?

I was desperate

Was that bad ?

I was hurt

Was I ok ?

I was alone

Was I a fool ?

For too long already

I went back to sleep

I prayed, asked my bed to cradle me

Asked my bedsheets to wraps their arms around me

I loved the scent of my arms

I needed to share it with you

My skin needed you

And had, since

The day after

I put my past away

I wrapped you with my skin

I became the night
