I woke in the night

restless in bed

Your words dancing wild

in the back of my head

Sleep crept like autumn…

cold filtered in

My warmth is your breath

as the circle begins

Nights are long lasting

Days linger on

I strain for a whisper

of an echoing song

Want is my keeper

Desire, my pain

I reach for you hoping

for relief once again

But dark shadows flee

leaving no trace

Elusive remembrance

of a lover’s embrace

Dreams overcome me

Soul taking flight

The answers we’re holding

soon appear in my sight

Why do you murmur,

sever my dreams

Show me that nothing is

ever quite as it seems…
