in and out of dreamless sleep

awoken with reddened cheeks

enveloped in your warm embrace

wrapped with tender love and care

tied a ribbon around my wrists

a metallic green string of bliss

a thread of human fate

slow jazz and a fragment of heaven

pondering the opportunity

to rest a moment longer
