His bed is warm, familiar, and it smells
familiar too, the mingled scents
of sweat, wood and tobacco, and the sweet-
scented soap he washes with. I lie here
beside him every night.  Sometimes I slip
in by him while he sleeps, burrow my face
behind his soft back.  The smell of his body
is warm, comforting as any blanket.
I fall asleep in the soft grateful glow,
of having this, my portion, here on earth.
This is a bit odd, I guess. I find smells a very comforting thing, so they show up a lot in my writing.

I guess this is a reflection on the more physical side of love now that it's not as new to me. Not so new in a good way, though, not strange or uncomfortable. I was not used to sleeping in other people's beds before. :)

:) I like that and sitting on his lap and drinking my evening tea when the day's over. And the way he smiles when I come home from work. It's beautiful.
