A short love poem


AWAKEN
Sara L. Russell 

Are you awake?
so much I wanted to say
you smile so gently, in sleep, as you're turning away
secrets of silence
in words weighing too much for sound
I want say them but watch them all fall 
through the ground

Are you awake?
so much that begs to go right
so much I wanted to heal, in the balm of the night
tentative touches, 
such chances as never return
but you are sleeping. I lie by your side 
and I burn.

The feelings expressed here remind me of those that I shared via my short story posted here at AD entitled, "Sigh." Your poem is most compelling, Sara. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

Hi Sara,

It's been a while since I've read your work. You have a way of capturing the moment... so much so, I was there.
