I am going to bed

I am going to bed to eat biscuits, drink tea
I am going to bed to read well-translated poetry
I am going to bed to lie with clenched fists
I am going to bed to dream of a kiss

I am going to bed to remember
I am going to bed to forget
I am going to bed to smell the coffee
I am going to bed to gaze at the photo standing next to me

I am going to bed to collect my thoughts
I am going to bed to smell the pines from this morning’s walk
I am going to bed to shape the pillow to my head
I am going to bed to breathe slowly and sweat

I am going to bed to feel cool cotton on my back
I am going to bed to fall fast asleep with my nose in a book
I am going to bed to wonder what trend not to follow
I am going to bed to plan out every tomorrow

I am going to bed to stare at the darkness
I am going to bed to think of the sweetness
I am going to bed to sleep the sleep of the sleepy
I am going to bed to write sleep-drizzled poetry

I am going to bed to cover my head with two pillows, one duvet
I am going to bed to close my eyes and dream very slowly
I am going to bed to plan my next trail run
I am going to bed to fall in love all over again

I am going to bed to see the sky behind blue eyes
I am going to bed to know that you are my lover
I am going to bed to feel we are floating on the waves
I am going to bed to know that it is over
