Back to Poetry Back to Sipsydoodle!

as you snore i adore

you–even as i lie awake–
even the idea of you
the space of you on
my body’s shape or
the smell of our home you
embody– you,a being
separate from myself
yet symbiotically
my other self with
unspoken dreams–
life’s great continuation–
for isn’t love just
God's way of
doubling us and
our joy?
