Hypnotic Sleeping Beauty

In the wee of the night,
I thought about you sleeping tight
I let you stay on my mind… consistently
Not that I had any control really,
But this brought me such joy:

The sprawl of you on the bed
The breath of you while you slept
The beat of your ‘unsleeping’ heart
The glow of you n a room scarcely lit

So appealing, so hypnotizing this joy
That I kissed my mattress thinking it was you
