Sleeping

Felt just right, being that close to you.
Just a hug, nothing more.
A knot of limbs, almost all of us touching.
Your face; close to mine, sleeping.

There’s no awkwardness between us although it’s taken a while.
No confusing wall of pillows and feelings.
I can hear you breathing,
Feel the warmth of your skin brushing mine.

I could easily have moved two inches and kissed you,
But I didn’t and I don’t think,
I actually wanted to.
This warm tangle of friendship keeps me warm enough.
