SOUND asleep!



His rhythmic snores –
Quite musical if not tired,
Keeps her awake!
Her grinding teeth –
Non-musical even if tired,
Keeps him awake!

Together, in-between –
They catch heavenly sleep
To travel through times, where –
No grinds or snores
Disrupt beauty sleep!

Thank goodness –
They compliment each other
Disgusting as it seems!
