Falling Asleep

Sliding down a spiral of diluted thought,
Slipping into pajama dreams
I fell asleep;
Gave up the phantom of control I’d entertained,
Accepting in its stead
The realization of anything and
Dropping finally into a sea of
Phantom flames, whispering

we watched the stars

we walked in the dark to the football field
raised our eyes to the sky

she’d never seen a shooting star

i don’t know what we spoke of
but it was pleasant just to have her near me

when we touched she touched me back

we broke the rules and climbed the ladder
concession stand conquered
and laid down
side by side
and watched the stars

and while we spoke
a burst of brilliance broke across the sky
and shared its light with our hearts

she saw her star

and i found mine.
