Not for you


I miss you.
R, this
is not for you to read.
Neither is I love you.
These words are for me
and the morning,
to whisper in my bed where I refuse
to get up,
but the sun keeps on
sending heat up my legs
my belly
my breasts--
I feel it breathing
across my collar bones-
I open my eyes to scold the light.
I wont acquiesce.
I will not
let quiet bully me.
I miss you, I repeat,
not for you to read
but for me to whisper with morning
in my bed.
