BEAUTY AND BLACK

January 20, 2011

If you’re too tired to talk

If it’s too late for listening

My little time to tell you

But I think  I just must  tell you both

My dreams were dark   no  darker

Much darker than your bedroom

I’m afraid  and I need to tell you

I want to tell you to hug me

And to let me under your blankets.

One morning I saw you and they were off

I stood  and  stared

You were the very best thing I ever saw

Both of you were so good   I cried.

I don’t want to wake you

Just my little time to tell you  both

My dreams were dark   no   darker.

    the last four lines are amazing.
    I love the spacing of the words.
