poem: love is not tiring

love is not tiring

my first thought in the morning is not you

it’s not anything, really

but my second thought is

“i can’t wait to go back to sleep,”

and not because i am tired

or because i love my bed

but because i love you

for every night,

i fantasize

and dream

and concoct different scenarios

where you would be in love with me too
