Cocooned

theres a beautiful silence here
as eyes droop and ears muffle
something courses through
your body, unexpected
but gorgeous, warmed from the inside out
closing old wounds 
knitting together broken hearts
as your breath slows 
and your skin tightens 
something golden moves to 
surround you, safe, relaxed
glued to the inside of a 
dandelion wish 
you stop, knowing 
this vacation won't be for long
and if it were forever 
you wouldn't mind 
cocooned in a pile 
of positive energy 
there's an erie silence here
as eyes droop and ears muffle 
you relinquish control
