Dream Catcher

His breath was a heavy blanket
across my face,
warm and sweet.

“I’ll catch the bad dreams,” he promises.
His hands tangle my hair,
spinning a web 
of feather-like strokes.

Lightning flashes,
thunder strikes,
clocks blink,

the sky is alive,
and we roll over

Written for the dVerse promptUse blanket as a noun, adjective, or verb. Describe a blanket, real or imagined. Make a blanket statement. Be cozy, dark, sensual, or funny. Maybe you want to blanket us with sunshine or warmth or blanket us under snow. Your choice, as long as your poem is 44 words.
