night and day

In the warmth of day
my love lies soft and tepid
sealed inside my lips
shy and concealed in
cool shade, congealed 
within the nebulous pools
of my eyes.

But at night
veiled in darkness
my heart opens, finds
comfort in dim-lit shadows
that warp and stretch,
and dreams swallow
my unspoken protest
with just a whisper
of your name.
