Falling Asleep While Julia Sings. ~ Michael Graber

Falling Asleep While Julia Sings—A Love Poem

What love does to a body

changes the atmosphere. You say

I live in your heart, literally.

So I swim this crimson sea,

body rippling on the cusp

of magic, a day so bright

its birth song reaches me here.

Too tired to float, drowning

feels right until nature blinks.

You kiss my neck. I feel

smiling through the veil of sleep.

Your voice lifts my spirit body.

I’m breathing under water now.

You know. I don’t have to explain.

Quit smiling. How did you

find your way here, too? I must

have left the gate open. Are we

swimming or dancing? I know this

place, so do you. We’ve reached

our bed in the heart we share.
