Maybe Tonight

Oscar Burriel


Sleepy eyes blink slower
The lower I sink
Below layers
Of silk

As whirling ceiling fans
Twirl
Circular cool air
Chill my head
In the center
Of our bed

I whisper prayers
Silent cares
Yawn an amen
And sigh your name
Again and again
Until I fade
Away

In deserts dry
I dream and drift
In the fracture
Of another day missed
Without your lips
Moist kiss

Lazer-like
Dawn rays
Trace
Once more
Your cool pillow
Without your face
In sight

Maybe tonight
Whispers
Maybe
Tonight

I love how you convey so much with so few words and your form is interesting, too. I am new to poetry so am intrigued by your work. I have much to learn, I see. Hugs, pat
