another sleepless night
not for the same old reasons
no worry
no anxiety
my pulse beats so fast
the pounding of my heart
would never allow rest
and shutting my eyes
is of little aid
your image burns away
the darkness in my mind
setting a million
billion neurons firing
i could run a marathon
if my feet touched ground
but you've lifted me up
broken free
of earthbound sensations
save the tingling
of my fingers
where i brushed your cheek
or where your hair fell
litely across my hands
and the soft fire
that swept across my lips
as i touched yours
and fell completely
under a spell
weaved as tight
as your embrace
and so i tell the sandman
to pass on by
there is no better
dream for me
