Sleeping by ao-oa

sleeping

 

sleeping is

an interesting thing,

in that it becomes an

entirely different event

when done with someone

you love.

 

alone, it is a routine,

a mindless necessity,

like using the bathroom, or

starting your car.

 

you lay there and try to get

comfortable, and drift off,

and eventually, you wake up and

continue on with your life.

 

but with a lover, it all is

reversed.

daily life becomes this void,

this dull, disappointing filler between

the hours in which

you can lay together again,

curled up in

silent serenity.

 

you take a slow,

deep breath, and gaze

upon your lover’s eyelids,

trying to imagine everything

that could be happening

behind them,

until you part ways

and reunite in a dream.
