Love in Low Light

 

Photographed by Marisa Chafetz

 

So if nothing-
If this bed is all I have for now
The warm lights outside lull me to sleep
every night
And the inside of this room looks the way
I'd always imagined a winter in love would
look.
And I remember being alone, with the
sound of la vie en rose, and the tears
come sweet and familiar.
The universe keeps giving me blue so i'll
take this tangerine,
Peaches and cream,
warm Windows, and things that look
better from the inside.
It's ok to look better from the inside.
I must be gentle to myself when the cold
comes because
Being resilient has never found me in love,
Anyway.
