I once lived in that house
slept in that bed
rested my head there
where your shoulder reaches
from that deep voice
to the warm expanse of your chest
I knew myself
a little while, uncertain
afraid of what lay ahead
would be what I left behind
You tucked my head
under your chin
hummed softly until
I lost even your name
