They loved each other in a way that made them want to stay awake in a world that desired sleep more than ever.
Together they felt a little less adult, and for once, that wasn’t a problem.
—  Maxwell Diawuoh, Once A Day (39/366)

sometimes i feel as empty
as your apologies,

but sometimes i feel like
i am in a tunnel
that echoes only love.

sometimes i am not ashamed
of how i feel. sometimes
i scream and sounds come out.
sometimes people listen.

and sometimes, finally,
i let them because
all they will find is warmth.
