Interlude Of The Dark

I watch how your eyes flutter on the brink of waking; and here, as I think in the moon's reflection, I drink in the quiet, my confidence shakes while inviting your touch, and longing your smile to wrap me in warm arms, embracing my solitude; yet, I'm lost in the parchment, the pale of the light, as stars in a multitude comfort me tonight. My lonely heart, confused, reaching out, seeing you, a face bemused with careless abandonment. You are deep in the center of your own universe, asleep and leave me alone with notion that you willingly go... far away to your dreams, to places I cannot know: With each breath, private, and shallow, I'm left, lost, bereft, and hollow without you. This I know.... I envy you, loathe that my slumber forsakes, so I could be with you, in that distant reverie. I hesitate, to wake you, I can't help but wonder, do you stream away on a cloud and with the mistress of your dreams ?

    It is a beautiful piece and your sentiments are clean, honest and sad. Eloquent, smoothly written verse and your talent is evident. Keep your spirits up. You are a treasure and as a treasure you must be treated. A 7! G.

    This makes me wonder what my sweetie thinks in the dark when she can't sleep and I am sleeping so soundly. A truly heartfelt wondrous poem.

    Dreams-- our glimpse into the sub-conscious mind. I loved the way you used the beauty of your surroundings to emphasize the frustration of insomnia. Yes... I too wonder what my spouse dreams of :)
