Classical music almost inaudible — just enough to mask the buzz of the air vent. You can never sleep when the air is on.

We’ve made it through a long day. A day more stressful than usual, but we have come out stronger people, with a stronger relationship. We may have struggled, but here we are —

our bodies intertwined. We always come together at the end of the day.

You laying on your back, me on my side.

My forehead against your temple.

My left hand gently holding your right.

I run my fingers through your hair.

You kiss me good night; your breath slows.

And finally, you sleep.
