The house sleeps.
Its sounds lure me to join
with their siren song of slumber.
The warm bed
hugs me with its softness,
entices me back to my dreams.
I push Somnus away
to listen to my lover’s night breaths.
this man who shares my bed,
and so much of himself with me.
I watch him.
As I sigh in response
he awakens, smiles and kisses me.
wrapped in each other’s arms,
wrapped in each other’s lives.
Our house sleeps;
peaceful slumber fills the rooms
as love fills our awakened hearts.
