I Want To Fall Asleep

I want to fall asleep,

To the melody of speckled lights,

Throwing shadows at painted walls;

To the scent of an up-ended book,

Regretfully laid aside for a different time, or a different face;

To the caress of gentle music,

Floating upon the weightlessness of my falling mind;

To the nibble of an approaching twilight,

Tapping longingly at the steadfast window;

To the spectacle of your weary eyes,

Succumbing to the distant whisper of a husky voice: ‘I want to fall asleep’.

The End
