Only You and I Can Dream…

I will spend my insomnia dreaming of you
eyes opened to your breathing under the sheets
dark hallway shadows
dog stirring in opposite room

i will lay here on the pillow beside you
feel the slip of your skin
as you sleep on your side
dreaming of things only you can dream

in this room of grey with the blue curtains
holding the night at bay

i will lay on my back and stare at the ceiling
my hand gently touching your body
until my eyes give way
and my body flows into yours

where we dream of things…..
