In the dim light

In the dim light,

Holding the bottle to your lips,
A new realm opens.

The world grows velvet,
Senses soften, congeal
In a Universe of lullaby
And starlit sheets.

A world of infinite gentleness
Like your bare chest rising
And falling as you drift

Into sleep.
Golden dreams flit across your face
Like moonbeams roving through clouds
In dark caverns of space.

A world where the heart opens

With tenderness beyond emotion,

Where sensation and feeling and love
Are one.
A vast river spread across the horizon
Moves with quiet force,
Carrying you and I
In one movement,

Without desire or stress

As the dim light fades further
Into darkness..
