AND CRY WHEN MORNING


I want to
sleep with you

I want to
sleep in you

& cry
when morning

separates us

into separate
entities

that it casts forth
moving about a city

longing

until night
comes

& joins
us

& I want to sleep
with you


& I want to sleep
in you

& cry
when morning...

    You really are the walking talking heart from my poem 'After an accident', (dedicated to you) - just look at this poem AND CRY WHEN MORNING

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,

Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
