Your lady sleeps

by Pamela

do you search
for
what her eyes
were porous to
throughout
the day
do you hear
her dreams
and read the
thoughts that
drip
from her ears
onto her silken
neck
do you
find
yourself
thinking the words
she longs
to utter –
spreading themselves
across her lips
do you feel
what she feels
when you
rest your head
on her chest
do you
so suddenly
feel warm
from her kindness
when you
touch her hand
do you see
where she
wants to go
when
you study her
sculptured hair
on the pillow
do you indulge
in
the perfume
that lulls
you to sleep
do you want
this
always
to be what
you
will do
