pillow talk
unknown

only your pillow knows
 1
the way your hands
 2
curl around
 3
your lover's waist.
 4
 
 
the way your lover
 5
gazes at you
 6
while you drift away
 7
on your side.
 8
 
 
the demons that
 9
grab you hostage at night
 10
only to release you
 11
in the morning light.
 12
 
 
the muffled screams
 13
shadows and ghosts
 14
your hands in prayer
 15
the silence of gods.
 16
 
 
the fire lit by an
 17
embrace
 18
the contours of
 19
a frozen face.
 20
 
 
the movements of
 21
your lovers mouth
 22
the  depths your
 23
tongue would
 24
penetrate.
