You in sleep by Terry Cummings

Delicately away in dream
The sounds of you echo over me
In caramelised temperance I listen

Your hands touch me
From another world
You reach to me

I lay my face in its home
In the nape of your neck
Beside warm hair
And I draw you into my lungs

You are sealed in peace
In comfortable awe
I am alone with you

Time is marked by your breath
As the night closes around
Wrapping us hastily together

Muted, I slip away
Into the scent of you
Into your contact

One thought lingers
A hope of waking
Into your dream
