My World Sleeps in This Bed Tonite

from by Martin Rivas



My world sleeps in this bed tonite
All the world here in this bed tonite
All the arms
All the legs
Intertwined and curled
In my world

My world is at peace tonite
Everything everything everything is gentle peace tonite
Silent dreaming
Moonlight gently beaming
In my world

Of course these are the days i’ll remember as the best
The nite would come and i’d be far too tired to rest
But I would
With a leg across my face
Or a finger in my ear
A foot
A head
An arm
It’ll be gone before I know
I savor the exhaustion
It feels too much like love
