I DON'T LIKE TO SLEEP ALONE poem
I Don’t Like to Sleep Alone
at night. Just to think of it, the aloneness
missing your lips, the feel of your
body, smoothness and entanglement
the lather of our moments, that
sweet smell of assent.
Life is fleeting as snowflakes and I
struggle to dance between
the falling. The journey
is worth the risk, as my wife
leads me to the bedroom of my desires.
From there I capture a balance,
keeps me from falling into despair.
Life is love. Love is forever.
