Knights Of Sleep

“Making love with a woman and sleeping with a woman are two separate passions, not merely different but opposite. Love does not make itself felt in the desire for copulation (a desire that extends to an infinite number of women) but in the desire for shared sleep (a desire limited to one woman).”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being




I feel the pull of desire against my eyes

The drawbridge lowers deep in my castles of thought

These arduous doors are opened by a courting call

Lit by darkened dreams not from the day

But by the undulating billows of subtle night

Missing my physical touch I find only a Queen of slumber

I reach for you to hold the fading ethereal way

I am left with only the encroaching knights of sleep
