To Sleep

Safe in our darkness,
the hypnotic beat of your
heart lulls me to sleep.

"our darkness"

Many layers of meaning in these two juxtaposed words...

It's like listening to the sea in a shell--hard to tell whose heart is beating sometimes.

Really nice. Very beautiful. I love the word choices in particular. Safe/darkness great contrast here, and then hypnotic/lulls. It's a beautiful write if taken as is, but deeper if you look at it as if it's a dangerous world and you have someone that can "shelter" you from the world outside, which is both a good and also a dangerous thing in it's own right. Excellent piece
