In the night
my restless heated dream
meanders down crazy lanes
then takes flight
above a somber thought

In a frightened heartbeat
I ride a demon’s roller coaster
circling with the malice
of laughter
intent on speed
gripping at corners
slipping my hold
climbing, climbing ‘til
I plummet down
into the echo
of a scream

Heart pounding
I reach out to your
sleep deep tenderness
breathe your breath
know your hand lost
in the soft beguile
of my back

You feel me
warm on warm
then take me
to a oneness
safe and soft

and I come home to you

Very nice, Martie. Nothing like having someone there to take away the fears and cover you in safety.
