Bed

Lily Isabella Williamson (age 16), Belfast Royal Academy, Belfast

 

An eye and a hand and a mouth and a nose,

A mug on the bedstand,

A dirty pile of clothes.

The damp and the dust and the open window,

Fresh fog in the air,

Warm breath fills the cold.

My alarm goes off on my phone and I quickly turn it off,

The other is reached for.

And then we laugh.
