Falling Asleep While Julia Sings—A Love Poem
What love does to a body
changes the atmosphere. You say
I live in your heart, literally.
So I swim this crimson sea,
body rippling on the cusp
of magic, a day so bright
its birth song reaches me here.
Too tired to float, drowning
feels right until nature blinks.
You kiss my neck. I feel
smiling through the veil of sleep.
Your voice lifts my spirit body.
I’m breathing under water now.
You know. I don’t have to explain.
Quit smiling. How did you
find your way here, too? I must
have left the gate open. Are we
swimming or dancing? I know this
place, so do you. We’ve reached
our bed in the heart we share.
