sweetheart the drunk

you always sleepon the far left side of the bed and make sure to leave room for someone else on your right. you have been known to leave a pile a clothes or a perpendicular pillow in the empty space, just to have something to put your arm over. but the pillow smells of you and the clothes smell of you and the sheets and the room smell of you too, and the mattress indentation that you deepen with each passing night will eventually sink you down to the floor. and what a sight you'll be then: alone, unable to sleep and hidden inside your own bed.
