gotta love insomnia

In the shadows of a sleepless night

Spent alone in a sorrowful wanting

I suffer from a night terrors vicious bite

And hear its deranged and despairaging taunting.

My souls second half, the yang of the yin

Kidnapped by a daytime creature clever and unseen

By what means the rescue, how could I win?

To find my feelings once more, my love would be redeemed.

Still in the darkness of the depths of the door

No smile, no laughter, no presence can I fantasize

Seperated from dreaming by the devils demented war

And soon in those thrashing are my horrors realized.

For a moment I feel the presence

of someone who is warm and kind

no trepidation in their touch, no hesitance

as they allay the fears from my raging mind.

"Swear you'll never leave me

stay always at my side

the words I scribe do not come cheaply

my feelings I just cannot hide."

But this breath of comfort's gone once more

And the shadows chill my will and spirit

Once again does peace vanish, leave darkness at my door

And within the silence your retreat…I cannot hear it.

I sob then quietly into a pillows ivory case

Until the sheets are stained wet with my pain

Now a Cast Away in the dark vast of space

No stars to guide me or gravity to steady my aim.

For though drawn to you there where you cannot exist

I still seek your presence each of my days and nights

And while these nightmares may growl and persist

Within the memory of your gaze on mine I see heavens lights.

The memory of you is like water now

Sometimes strongly flowing and brilliant

At others shadowed and calm in the chill of snow

But still you remain in my dreams truly vibrant.
