Mysterious Whispers

He breathes beside me 
On the bed
His pillow neatly lain

His lungs inflate
And fill with air
He lets it out again

It's silent now
For apnea reigns
But I know what comes after

His snore begins
At decibels
That convulse me in laughter

I love this man
Who wears my ring
Our love runs pure and deep

But buy me earplugs,
Please, and soon
So I can get some sleep!
