Harmonise As Sleepless Dreams


Let me sleep with you in common sense of
somnolence, let my dreams arise and take
the road in easy stride.

I won’t be the bleeding of your conscience,
make demands, seek comfort in your arms
without consent.


My wants are easily declared; my needs are
less specific to redress but drift within a state
of indolence undressed as pride.

And where you sleep a deep and eminent
contentment I will harmonise beside you in
my sleepless dreams.
