WHILE YOU SLEEP

WHILE YOU SLEEP while you sleep my fingertips ache and throb on the keyboard of my vacant mind you are my night that arrives in one gigantic step over the polite lines where we cast our skins and slide into another life you are my tears that mollify burnt moon spheres upside down hearts of dripping wax warnings and fears you I touch with feathered intent over shoulder blades of tension easing your pain tracing a finger into the dark corners of your abstract mind empty spaces away from your embrace I echo words onto vacant pages of your beautiful mind © Kim van Breda—11 January 2016
