Slumber

As you lie next to me,

your snores resonating through the room,

I stare, not seeing, at the television and its epileptic flickering of light and dark.

An incessant cacophany of jingles and theme songs,

punctuated by the in and out rhythm of life and death that is your breath,

serenades my soul and numbs my mind.

My eyes are heavy.
