One hour to dawn. I don't know why I can't sleep. Maybe it's this tiny thing, this small fluttering in my heart that I don't quite recognize. It makes me want to stay awake to savor this moment, this miniscule slice of… of… happiness, before it slips away with the spreading of the morning rays. You are not one bit disturbed, though. Your chest rises and falls rhythmically, steady as your heartbeat and your casual lies, strong as your arms and your ambition. As the sun climbs, I watch your familiar limbs turn wheat-colored under tawny rays that sneak in through the louvers. You snore, but it doesn't matter. You hold me, thinking that I am someone else, but it doesn't matter. It's better than the emptiness I will feel in a few moments, squinting at your disappearing silhouette in the door frame. [Loo Ching Ling 吕晶琳]
