Sensual Sleep

Form: Free Verse

Last night I inhaled and tasted you until
my head was dizzy and I needed to sleep
my mind fighting me to stay awake as if
sleeping breaths were a wasted opportunity
for tomorrow night, we sleep apart
and my need is to remember you
lying here next to me
my fingertips brushing your skin
your hair
forcing the sensations into my sub-conscious mutterings
because stroking cold linen is not the same
