I’m letting
you in just
a little
at a time

like last night
when I opened
my eyes and kept
them open
a few seconds
my forehead
pressed
to yours

and though I was
too close
to see
I could feel you
grin

me, finally meeting
your eyes
like opening blinds
so slowly in the morning
because the sun is so bright
after night
