Release In Dreams


Once I bloomed
when your breath
skimmed my body
settled like mist
on my hot skin

Now I want kisses
to whisper on my face
land softly on my lips
A passionate frenzy
to ignite in me
at the gentlest of touches

But you lie unmoving
by my side
You don’t reach for me
And I turn away
to find my release
in dreams

Reality has long since
ceased to arouse me
