BETWEEN the limbo

of sleep and wakefulness,

comes the time to yield

and surrender.

Those twin points

realign in my mind—

your firmness

and my restlessness.

They circle,

amidst whispered sentiments

that remain unanswered,

riling up nocturnal feelings,

as I retrace it all:

the widening

and narrowing breadth

between our bodies.

Still, my heart is elated

for even the most crooked

of conjoined arcs must meet

where the wandering orbit

comes to rest.
