Seeing…

(This is a part of continuing poetry challenges over at LL's blog, Seedlings in Stone)

Slumber comes
inward floating down
dancing waters
rhythmic turn reaching
against starry night
stretch and grow

but in the darkness
fear and betrayal swim
swirling tempests
threatening to overcome

tossing and turning
flail I against the
emptiness
bedclothes tangle and catch

arm encircles
comforts, draws in
husbands heart beat pounds in ear
soothing slowing

tears wend ribbons
across skin down face
round curve
as I slip into sleep again
