I blanket myself

In the softness of dreams unfulfilled

On a Wednesday.



Each morning

Lifts its cushion

Of tenderness

Off your frame

As the sun seeps

Through holes

Punched through

The curtains lining my eyes.



My vision of you

Sticks close,

Felt on lips

And tasted

On

The tip of my tongue.

      Just read this again. I love the lines, "holes punched through the curtains lining my eyes". Great metaphor. I always love the images you choose to go along with your poems, also.

      Sleep does provide a numbing tranquility; your poem evokes questions potently left unanswered.

      AudreyHowitt,

      I read this three times, just in this one sitting; it's addictive like that. How magical; almost so simplistic, yet so very deep. Whimsical and romantic. I just love it!
