Questioning Rest

Why would I silence my eyes for the night
And surrender to slumber
And a fractured patchwork of pictures,
When I could let them recount 
Each electric detail of the evening just past
That I spent in your eyes, on your lips, on your heart?

    '...fractured patchwork of pictures,' both ASS. and ALL. You decode the essence of a loving relationship with such masterful insight and skill.
