Come closer.

Warm your hands near the fire of my heart.

Come closer.

Circle yourself around my ribcage

and absorb

the heat,

allow it to ease you into sleep.

Come closer.

Let your cold breath

melt into my hair;

bury your face in my neck.

I am heat

I am life

I am warmth -

come closer.

Winter is here,

but so am I.

So, come closer.
