Looking at You

How her face changes when she is sleeping. I have not seen that face before, where is she?
Where do the zillions go in the sleeping hours?
And when she comes back, her mask reset; will this face be taut beneath,  waiting for the next night's darkness?
Looking At You.  

Now asleep:
Are you young again?  

When your body loosens out
And your eyes needn't see me
And your face unravels from its cares;  

Is it me you'll want to escape from?  

To run back, hurdling over the years,
To seek out your first lover, and to nestle
In that small space of time before doubts began.
