Bedtime Phantoms

Weightless in my wanting,

Riding the waves on a sea of blankets,

Humming quietly to the darkness,

As a breeze through the window,

Cools my skin,


A smile is found lingering,

On my thirsty evening lips,

And I wonder oh so lightly,

What name they hold captive,

In the moist den,

Of my mouth,


Who prompted this latent grin?

Who has snuck into my head space?

I am lying here alone, yet haunted,

By my unknown aggressor,

In love,


Be gone you tasteful demon,

Assail me no more with kisses,

So weightless as a sigh,

Tying up my ragged heart strings,

Into Gordian’s knot.
