Pillow Talk

by V

You lie there…
So beautiful and still
Cozily wrapped up in the warm glow of your dreams
I wonder if you can sense the intensity of my feeling for you
Are your dreams cast in the burning reds
and warm gentle pinks of my love?

You lie there…
So peaceful and at ease
The sum of everything I've ever wanted in life
Does the heat of my passion burn you? 
Does it radiate off of your soul and warm your body?
Can your heart recognize the song that mine sings?

You lie there…
Unconscious to the world, unknowing
Reminding me of he emptiness that marked the time before your love
Could you ever know that to lose you
would be to banish me back into the depths of that wasteland?
And if you did, would it really matter?

You lie…
In your sleep
you lie…
Calling out a name that should be my own
Killing me slowly with each and every whisper
Did you ever love and crave me as I do you?
Or was it always her face that you dreamed?

You lie…
And now…
So do I
You're perfect when you're sleeping
And I can pretend you dream only for me
