Cold Nights

Huddled under the blanket.

The only warmth

to be found

is in the space occupied

by my body.

Fetal position.

Legs cramping.

Stretching them

before pulling them back

into the only warmth found

despite the cramps.

Too cold to do anything

but shiver.

The night lasts longer

when sleep

is overridden by need for not freezing.
