Insomnia


Some colors passing by,
Some dewdrops in my eyes,
Some planets overhead,
It’s time to go to bed.

A wrinkled sheet unfurled,
A topsy-turvy world,
A match lit in the dark,
A fire from a spark.

This world keeps spinning ‘round;
The stars don’t make a sound.
These endless nights wear on
Until we meet at dawn.

The Words That I Lose to the Night

Trying to remember the words you breathed into my heart,
Trying to remember the melody I wrote in my dreamlike state.
I remember the sensations, but not the syllables.
I remember that it was good.
I remember that you were glorified.
I remember that I was too tired to get out of bed and write it down.
I remember wondering if I would remember it the next day;
I remember hoping I would.
But I can't remember the words.
