Magic Bed, Special Dreams
Isabelle5

My bed expands at night,
 1
stretches out to realms
 2
unseen beneath the sun.
 3
 
My toes touch sands
 4
not made by mountains
 5
on any human map
 6
 
and there are special dreams
 7
when lovemaking
 8
with handsome men  
 9
is just as real
 10
as when I am awake –
 11
 
I wake relaxed,
 12
my hands above the sheets,
 13
 
purring like a cat,
 14
humming songs
 15
no man will ever hear,
 16
 
in a bed, small and snug
 17
and big enough for one.
