One Pillow

A poem called “One pillow” which can be found in my book ‘A Coffee Stained Heart.’
I know it is obvious I didn’t work overly hard on the accompanying image, but I thought it wasn’t necessary for this poem.
Sometimes simple is best.
I hope you enjoy it.
Poem Title One Pillow by Aarron Laidig

Sharing one pillow…
a hot summer’s night
with the sweat of passion
cooling on skin—
starlight through a window
reflecting in her eyes
as heartbeats slowed.
Sharing one pillow…
her smile made him say
he felt heaven on earth
in her arms.
With the sweat of passion
cooling on skin
as her fingertips
played on his back
tracing circles
she asked when
he had become so romantic.
Looking into her eyes
past the reflection
of glowing starlight in her eyes,
deep into her soul
where her true self lay open
he confessed
with reasoned sincerity
it was when
he’d found her.
