I Must Be Asleep
am I awake? can this be real?
I'm drunk in my desire
as you lay next to me
in a bed of rose pedals and forgotten dreams.
somehow you brought it all back to me
feelings of erotic passion and a breath of life
I thought they were forever lost
in an eternal darkness left by lovers gone
my eyes smile once again at the beauty before them
my lips ache once again to be kissed
my hands long to touch your burning flesh
my heart pounds so hard it nearly escapes my chest
oh, I must be asleep! can this really be true?
