Blue light dances across the ceiling,
Cast forth from my alarm clock always glowing.
We curl in bed, laying together.
We find solace in each other.
I kiss you lightly so that you don't wake..
You roll over so that our faces are point-blank.
Even in sleep, you're unwilling to part like there's bands. .
Nuzzling, you entwine our hands.
My heart beats..
Just once in two minutes.
Sleep starts to come..
And runs like a threatened bum.
Reality invades my sleep-deprived mind.
Releasing the pillow, I realize sleep is denied.
The illusive goal keeps slipping..
Of this, there's no hope of capturing.
I can't sleep because of thoughts of you..
I stare at the blue light and smile though.
I'd rather be sleepless
Than to be loveless.
