Comfort
Katie Humphrey April 2019

comfort.

you can give it a name if you want.
a name.

color-coded books
golden candles, so perfect
walking along, talking to myself,
I liked the way it sounded, like a mouthful of ice cream.

I want to laugh
I know I’m probably going to cry when
and I don’t want

with a smile half shining and then fading.
the little bit of happiness inside me flutters

He smiles.
and my heart blushes.
