When Daydreams Fall Asleep

When Day Dreams Fall Asleep

[Inspired by Confession by Dandegirl. This version is a little different. Improvement on Draft 1?]

Into the spiral of sleep I drifted,
reminisced in blue starlight
a conversation with you
had in the day when
blended understandings
guided us to an inner
silent space amorphous
deep like the darkness of night
joining with its silent dream light

Drifting, I saw you caress yourself
like a conversation of body-knowing hymn
in the space amorphous glowing in my smile
and I wonder if you knew
I was there within you.

When Day Dreams Fall Asleep (Draft 1)

Into the spiral of sleep, I drifted into
a light of remembrance of a day:
a conversation with you when
a mutual understanding
made us fall into
a silent space amorphous
like the darkness of night
that has its dream light

Drifting, I saw you caress yourself
like a conversation of body-knowing hymn
in the space amorphous glowing in my smile
