296 – Under the weather

“I feel like crap
Left out the sun to dry.”

She said.
Then licked her parched lips,
Drank some water,
And rolled back
Under the covers.

A pair of soft hands
Caressed her back
Followed by
A gentle sneeze.

“I love you too.”
Coughed her gentle voice behind her,
Making her feel just a little less
Like shit.

“Not exactly medicine…”
She thought holding her hand.
“…But close enough.”
