Dream Dragon
by ©Richard Budig 1999

Cross words and traded looks
Looks that trigger head flashes
In a moment the wall is up
We're perched on opposite sides
Of our one-acre king sized bed
Itís odd because the way we sleep
We could rent the extra space
But sleep comes hard tonight
I finally give up and study you
Study the curve of your shoulder
Across the glacier of sheets separating us
While I memorize the crest of your cheek
A night frown stirs your face
I find myself thinking about me
Wondering why I flew at you
You frown again and whimper
Without thinking I glide toward you
Crossing the glacier of rumpled sheets
Parting trecherous ice berg pillows
Until I'm stroking your forehead
I feel you settle into me
Making me feel like a knight
Who just killed your dream dragon
And I lay there wondering how it is
We act so badly when we love so dearly

ROFL I have slept on that bed! It's immense, I would feel like a sink hole could open up in the middle and we'd never notice...and ours was only a queen
I think I am liking your poetry my friend
