Dream On

It’s close to midnight,
My thoughts are taking flight,
Averse to my sleepy plight,
Restful sleep would be a delight.

My brain decides to spark, to ignite,
Thoughts cluster like a series of kites,
Now I imagine pigeons in tights,
Next the seaward lights.

My neural paths traverse,
Thoughts move in reverse,
Seemingly continuous, like a curse,
Could it be getting worse?

I lay awake,
My eyelids shake,
Of this, I’m unsure of what to make,
That last shot of caffeine was a big mistake!

I kissed the pillows of her cheeks. Covering myself in the blanket of her caress. While here nothing is heavy. Maintaining the balance of smiles in the bed of her arms She doesn’t mind my snore, relaxed in complete comfort.
