instant automatic

immobile and unconscious
nearby you breathe soft sleeping sound
swinging drapes show the heat and
that glow coming in through the laundry room window
allows me to see the small toy of the pet
nightlight around a corner is
the shadow of your slow dreaming twitch
amplified by the amazing stillness of
unmoving air in every other room
tiny sighs come drifting out of your mind
on the blanket your hand stretches out
my mind can now forget all my past nightmares
all of my tension has left a couple hours ago
thankful for you as i remain
i wonder how we got back here again
can you tell me where we are headed?
