You, asleep next to me
and my eyes have company
in the flashlights of passing cars
tearing through the unlit room

Night time
undresses my dreams. I lay
bare-boned, silent, aglow
with no choice but to surrender

For in my mind
I swim alone, away from
your arms; from our son's
eager grasp

In the privacy of my exhaustion
I am a hybrid of hope
channeling battles that will
round me up

Like a solemn moon
with craters cleared of Karma,
hovering over The Present
- its pulsating ribbons

ready to be undone
with the imminent rise
of the morning Sun.
