All this pillow talk has me
circling the beaten sky,
trekking into early eternity,
blissful rumbling stirring
to brilliant bleached morning.

I am swimming
in the blankets dragged
back to my coma, weakly
I kick myself to wake.  
In that slight moment
between sleep and day

I remember her face

A haunting icon
of deepest daze,
she was born in my
darkness, a fair
nocturnal Princess of
beauty undeniable,
Opiate whispers caress
in divinity
I was locked upon
her infinite gaze,
calling me to abandon the
world of stone for

the kingdom of dreams.

In a flash of eyelids
a stirring of clarity
she was lost to oblivion
and I to the waking dawn.
Oh how I desire her addiction
her coma affection…..

Her sleeping pill eyes

Brian that's a great title. I don't know how you and the nocturnal princess got on but I have reason to believe that she was the only one who got any sleep. But hell..you may not have slept very well in the world of stone either.
Excellent work! Very very well put together.

BrianM~
What intrigue you've captured.

'In a flash of eyelids
a stirring of clarity
she was lost to oblivion
and I to the waking dawn.'

Wonderfully portrayed -
the dream that got away !

Oh to love and share our pillow talk till the sun comes up....what beauty is beheld within this kind of love, this kind of lifetime moment....

calling me to abandon the
world of stone for

the kingdom of dreams.

In a flash of eyelids
a stirring of clarity
she was lost to oblivion
and I to the waking dawn.
Oh how I desire her addiction
her coma affection…..

Her sleeping pill eyes

"Opiate whispers caress

"oh how i desire her addiction
her coma affection...
her sleeping pill eyes"

how often i have felt drugged by a combination of restless sleep and  beautifully haunting images born of my dreams...you are gifted,and i enjoyed reading every word.

You work surprises me every time I read.  I am not surprised at its excellence, but that I take something different away from it each time...incredible, the way you do that.
