As dreams caress that midnight hour,
As eyelids slowly close;
Permission then I give to thoughts.
I breathe a soft repose.
And mindful am I of the pain
That distance does impose;
Emotions mirrored on your heart
Now open, once was closed.
As pensive parts of me resist
To wander t’wards the dark,
A sky of stars upon my skin
Enlightens with its mark.
And on this night, within this bed
I hear hushed whispers speak;
And though a strength I somewhat had,
A secret presence makes me weak.
And storms of madness rage unending,
Begging to be slayed;
To slash the sheets upon this clichéd
Bed that I have made.
And shattered shards of broken heart
I place within your palm;
With tender force, you soothe these lacerations
with your calm.
And fear creeps in, though fight I do,
To keep these beasts at bay.
This blissful torment felt by both-
It tortures night and day.
As sleep descends,
My essence bends towards this will of yours,
A permanence of amorous
Addiction soon out pours.
And all of me that cries to reach
(To pain I’m prone)
Impossible though it may feel,
Don’t leave me in
This world alone.
