The Sleep of Silence

a body untired
i dream the sleep
of an exhausted mind
shutting down
and locking down

darkness is a friend
in these rare moments
when the world around
and the ramblings
of my shrieking mind
are both hushed

in this sleep of silence
time passes
but is not wasted
for in my dreams
we are together

we do not speak
we do not move
souls intertwine
and hearts are caught
in a heavenly hug
and melt into one

this is another world
without others
dark but quiet
a place for souls
yours, and mine

the absence of light
does not hurt
it binds and it bonds

i crave this blindness,
this silent vacuum,
that makes me feel
that makes me see
that makes us be
