Into Clouds of Lions and Tigers

Into Clouds of Lions and Tigers

I lay
there alone
in the dark night
waiting for repose
my restless mind wanders
I’d be lying to myself
if I said I didn’t miss you
the sound of your voice, your amber eyes
thoughts and memories tumble through my head
then I’m flying high, light as helium
soaring across cornflower blue skies
searching for your gentle spirit
I’m freefalling into sleep
sinking into clouds of
lions and tigers
where I shall rest
and you’ll be
in my
