sleepy kisses keep me from sleeping

tired slips between
the folds in my brain
coating every thought
as i coax my tongue
to twist the syllables
of your name in a way
to summon you through
the electrified aether
an incantation of
my utmost adoration
in a series of sleepy
kisses dripped slowly
honey across your skin
a dedication in desire
snagged from lingering
wisps of dreamvapors
coalesced along every
half awake declaration
muttered in desperation
clutching the pillow
a suspension of relief
as every bare nerve
screams a new iteration
an incantation of love
a realignment of
syllabication in an
avalanche of exhaustion
