Laying by my Mate

My brain is racing 
Future chasing 
Confused state 
Wired, as I lay by my mate 
Tired in this state 
To hold on 
This love is so strong 
Hanging onto this bond 
Wanting his skin 
Devoting all to him
Where to begin
To feed him 
Eat it all in 
Taking another deep breath
As I move around restless 
Grounding me so 
The magic hands from Moe
He stirs and places them on my head 
His fingers massage my scalp 
Moving across slow 
Assuring me, allowing me to be, this act
Let’s me go 
Away from the cray 
His way to let me know 
It’s all ok 
In stillness we lay 
“I love you” he will say 
Reminding me “it’s time for sleep” 
In his heart tonight he will keep 
Safe and 
Protected, with ease 
Absolutely yes! More of this please 
Until another day 
I can put this all away 
Thoughts at bay 
I rest my sighs 
Closing my eye 
Floating to dreams 
Carried by light beams 
Enfolded in him closing my eyes finally for the night 
I lay calm in his moonlight
