A Random Thought That Occurred To Me In Bed Last Night

by Heide McAlister-Bates

Breathe your sighs
between my open lips...

Isn't it funny how the
time spins away when
we're entwined by
the fine line between

...they will be returned
to you, in full.


Author's Note: It is funny, isn't it?

Wonderful imagery in its succinctness.....

yaaaaaay for poetry. There's something incredibly sad about that first little stanza. Sighs into your open lips. Sounds very complacent on one end, yet on the other hand, so desperate for passion. Interesting

the fine line between passion and insanity? who sets the standards anymore for insane? anti socialism? beautiful writing love

there is much to be said about the randomness of thoughts, particularly when they set the notion of this poem in motion.

I like how this piece is both sensual and spiritual. Well done!

This holds my folded face to the floor and everyday the paperboy brings more. Passion and insanity, can you have one without at least a touch of the other! I really like this exercise in "getting there quickly"!

I like it just the way it is, the couplets, the thought in between for that is how random thoughts occur and sighs are returned in full, be they passionate or insane for that is how relationships are...excellent. smh
