Unsleep the night,
repress fallacious feasibility,
awake the dreamer to all probability,
Forsake the hours spent in cloud drifts, ghosted shadows
of the lives we meant to see,
Trail the highways of insomnia,
where bridges solid
link illusion to reality,
Unsleep the night.
Will you love me kinder, tender of my dreamscapes,
While passion flares will softness still hold sway,
Shall we dance with longing through the nighttimes
All fears and inhibitions held at bay.
Will we be such lovers on the dancefloor swaying,
Beat to beat, hearts tempoed to the tune,
Shall we weave and wax our words and feelings,
Silhouettes reflected in ballroom.
Will we tango footsteps, bodies fusing
Wilder yet though cherished in the dance,
Shall we meet upon the moonlit parquet,
Tender lovers teaching of romance.
Will the thrum of love keep right on beating
As planets twirl and sunlight filters through,
Shall divinity of the dance we shared in passing
Resist the light and save my dreams of you.
