Synaesthesia Magazine Seven Deadly Sins - Page 46

No pretty dreams this coal black night

and two people in a slipstream

caught in chains,

dreaming of each other

under bedclothes

unseen thoughts fester

cool sheets slither

across naked bodies

and low moans of frustration

are muffled in deep pillows

each one dreaming of

what can never be.
