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.
