Only In Sleep (An Attempt To Be Relevant) - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

only in sleep
shall i make love with you
only in sleep
shall you caress my body
only in sleep
shall this love have
only in sleep
shall we two become one
only in sleep
shall passion be
only in sleep
can i be true

after this sleep
one takes the mask again
dresses up for the
coming hours
well poised and respected
one meets lies with lies
quick as a sparrow
meek as a dove
but foxy still
with all your wiles

only in sleep
shall we all be weak
only in sleep
shall love
be love
