sleep

Awake

I lie with strangers
in dormitory soundscapes
dreams keep me awake 

Breathing

our shallowed breathing  
soft whispers each to other  
as sleep approaches

You

the persistent rain  
a solitary streetlight  
you sleep beside me

Sleep

you come in darkness  
urgency displacing angst  
clear skies snowing sleep

Lie

I lie beside you  
sleep naming unknown lovers  
we have different dreams

Mother

you sang so softly  
melody beckoning sleep  
my childhood comfort

Lying

you lie carelessly  
disarranging words like limbs  
talking as you sleep

Nap

dozing dogs snuffle  
as shadows slide steadily  
clock ticking off time

Slumber

I sleep through dramas
monochrome sketches sleeting
in moonlit sadness
