You are, But an Anxiety Brewer

When you look at me
through those dimly lit corridors
in the faint glory of the sunlight
in the early hours of the morning –
eight o’ clock to be precise,
I fly down the flight of stairs,
cross the road,
and to calm my anxiety,
I get myself a cigarette –
a king size,
to be precise.

When you hurl that gaze upon me,
encompassing that well-braided hair of yours,
I stand transfixed
and wait for your gaze to pass away –
if your gaze stays,
I know I am going to text you tonight
while being curled up in my bed,
my head sinking in the unfathomable depth of my pillow –
the pillow which had your head once sunk in too.
