barely awake

Barely awake.
Eyes are open and I’m sitting here, but
Underneath all my cells are still pulling the covers close
Warm in bed.

I feel semi drugged in this state
That is halfway between asleep and fully awake
The state where anything is still possible
It could be sensual, lingering, erotic

You know that feeling you get
Afterwards
When your entire being is humming
Ever molecule is aware and tingling
And then it is just sweet oblivion
Nothing matters and your eyelids
Are too heavy and you
Are so satisfied and full and sleep welcomes you.
