Like drinking vodka and Red Bull, but better.

Like a single flash of lightning
Amid an endless expanse of darkness
You have illuminated me,
Even if only for a brief moment.
Again, as always, I am
Electrified and intoxicated by
The lingering traces of you:
A too-rare smile still teasing
At the corners of my mouth
Damp hair and towels
Beside my bed
A delightful pile of the day’s acquisitions
Surrounding, strewn about
And enough leftover food to last
A couple of days.
Thank you for existing and
For being a part of my life.
