About Last Night

It's in the quiet I hear you.
My lungs elastic as they draw you in
with each comforting breath.

The memories of the day
expand my peace of mind
and careen my heart into you,

as you slumber next to me,
here in the solitude of our night.

understand the moment you describe, and the sentiment; I'm not sure of the significance of mentioning that your lungs are elastic.
Sure, the word has some connection to the drawing in, and the word expand in the fifth line, but do they have another bit of purpose? ~ Geez.

There is value to commenting and critique, tell us how you feel about our work.
This must be the place, 'cause there ain't no place like this place anywhere near this place.

N conncetion to the 5th line Geez. Elastic seemed fitting for me because I was trying to draw attention the my hyper-awareness of the moment. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn't, but I kie the visual here. Thanks you for commenting sir!

I find this such a beautiful image. Just feeling and enjoying the presence of a loved one; the mind at peace, needing no word, no motion, just blissful in the presence of.



The most powerful reaction
of mind on mind
is transference of sight

Thank you for commenting Tyro! Exactly that!
