Sleep and Dreams
I swallowed you today,
As the snow kissed my face,
And the sun hid beneath the clouds.
I never knew that last night when I closed my eyes,
Wishing for sleep and dreams,
As my dark lashes folded upon my cheeks,
Like the blankets that covered me.
That you would lose your carbonation,
With each swallow, subtle, and thirsting,
I longed to taste you as you were,
But like the seasons,
The winter has taken you,
Only bringing me cold.
