the world sleeps in night’s embrace

the earth is still, dreams take flight

but i do not sleep

i cannot will myself to take comfort in night’s lullaby

i stay awake, and my mind wanders

thoughts flash, like streaks of falling stars

illuminating the landscape of my thoughts

i look up and the sky, clear like day, opens and reveals your face

i took a step but the chasm that divides us is far too great

i can only gaze, for we are apart

your image blurs and i say ‘wait’

your smile fading quickly as the night gives way to dawn

no goodbyes, and  the tears did not fall

for at dusk, i might get a glimpse of heaven yet again.

  1. sometimes, some things are best to be seen far from us. like stars and people who once made us fall in love.

    it’s not leeting go. it’s putting things in the right order.

    free poetry. awesome.
