She Sleeps in Dreams

She is
 sallow-skinned, salacious, seductive beauty,
  secure, safely sequestered in seclusion;
   sinking, shaking, shattered, submerged 
self-contained, self-centered in selfless solitude
she sleeps, 
 a slip of a slenderized, spindly silhouette 
  silenced in the stillness of somberness, sinless seer,
   savoring simplistic, soothed in shadowy shades of night.

she teeters titillated,
 transparent in tranquil twilight,
  twinkling tangibility, a trembling in tenacious transition,
   thoughtful trepidation, turning trophies to tantalizing treasures.

She exists
 exaggerated expose' of effortless excised evenings
  effused in embellished effervescent eloquence,
   edgy enamored edicts, elated egotistical empowerment,

she wanders wistfully
 where the wonders of a whirlwind wanting world waits,
  wrapping wordsmithing into whimsical warbled wakings,
   wishful wisdom with warm-hearted whistlings of womanhood;
she clutches
 coddling childlike care, carvings cast and chastised 
  in cumulous clouded circles, cohesive cycles 
   of confident contented cerebral communion;

she dances
 drifting in decreed danglings, dark, dangerous, delicious
  purple plagued palettes of perceptive pewtered perfection 
   lavender lust, listless languishing lucid, luminous lilies, 
there at last, she finds 
  inner evolution, deepest peace, lasting rest
and so 
 she sleeps within her dreams.
