Pillows

The pillows beside me at night

Bear witness to the madness

That has taken me over

Soothing me into slumber

As I struggle to remember

How it felt to not be paralyzed

By fright

*

The man-shaped bundle

I hug as I stumble

Through nightmares and daydreams of you

Has finally acknowledged its most recent form

Pretending, for me, to possess a soul

And a human body
