leaking to dawn

Deep sleepless night
Blissful unretentive slumber
Eludes fatigued mind
Days pale reflection

Sheets tangled
Hot to cold

Ceilings shadows
Dance sway sing
Hidden rhythms
Faint words
Seem as echoes
Passing night
leaking to dawn

Weary smiles hinting

Refracted effigy
Lock gaze reflection
Moments ponder

Last calls summons
Tempts my mind
Unspoken offer

One more, to go
Drunken kisses
Taste best
