On a night when pharmacy fills the air
I lay here in midnight’s tare
Which I dare suck in, in subtle fumes
Ruins are my slackened form, complacent and subdued.
Entertained by thoughts of you,
Kindred and calming, like the moon’s wax and waning
You’ve been there all along.
Amorously I long for this loss of weight
To be cradled in your nooks, be the
Voice of your song.
Time is dissipating along with my pain
Like nights where love belongs.
Lingering in midnight’s tare,
Breathing passion in quiet anticipation
Entertained by thoughts of my counterpart,
The wall built, and the mason.
It divides us, now, while you lay unconsciously apart.
But constructs made cannot deter me;
Rapt with invading sleepiness, I dress my dreams,
Prepare for night to end, the fading star’s gleam.
I confess my intimacy with you has me relaxed and sweet
A smoker’s midnight daze and
Two lover’s single heartbeat.
