Mornings Are Always The Hardest

I often times wake up and
where I’ve been.
And I roll over and you’re
still sleeping soundly
beside me,
and just for a moment,
I think about staying
tangled in your bedsheets.
But I gently
kiss your forehead
and travel home,
thinking about how
long it will take my oatmeal
to set.
