day 10 of 365

she called me, 3 a.m. 
we had a little casual conversation.
she invited me over tomorrow.
i was entirely too excited but 
i answered with a “yes” so bashful 
that i could almost feel my eyelashes fluttering upon my lips.
we hung up
& i think my skin has left imprints 
of love on the walls.
a part of me is still against the wall
down the hall
like a teenaged girl,
the other part of me is here, 
wholesome
daydreaming in the middle of the night
about tomorrow and the delicacy of her
smile.
staring at a black ceiling, seeing the sunset.

this is how an angel cries

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
