Kim Nelson: Between Asleep and Awake

While I lie between asleep and awake,
The darkness takes shape.
Its texture like corduroy,
Its reach infinite.
The drift pulls me,
Unmoored in the blackness
Lost from my body.

While I lie between asleep and awake,
I feel you crawl over me into our bed,
Sliding your lips over mine
Like a cat leaving its scent
With a corner of its feline smile,
And when I feel your skin
I know that I’m home.
