long ago lover

in night’s
dead void
fingers touch my skin
whisper over ink
caress ridged scars
learn the stories
of my life

heartbeats quicken
limbs intertwine
sheets tangle
sweat sheens skin

i wake alone
startled by the alarm’s angry blare
i swing feet to cold floor
glance at the empty space next to me
what long ago lover did i remember
or was it just fiction
