I Breathe in the Dark

I breathe in the dark

you wake

naked laughing

it's hot you say

so I open the empty window

blushing

a night breeze comes

bringing velvet flower perfume

we listen and speak in whispers

for a while

you ask me once

but only as sleep takes you down and away

so I don't answer

only smile a little

and breathe in the dark
