nameless III

since you no longer hold me the way
you once did

at night I roam the stars
aimlessly breaking
through twisted sleep

and wake unrested, blinking the crust of night
from my eyes

sightless eyes

I laid awake this night and thought these same thoughts - how amazing to find them so eloquently written by another.

Thank you both for your comments! Mike, sweet dreams still elude me, but I know the night will come. Marty, I really appreciate you sharing this; so it's not just me!

Sometimes I read these poems of desire and longing of yours and I have to stop them from driving me to do dangerous things.

Herbis Orbis, wow... I write them so I won't do dangerous things! ;)
