Poem: Insomnia


In the middle
Of the night,
My eyes
Both red
and dry,
Are afraid to close.

Afraid to forget you.

You lay there
Dreaming of a better way.

Without me?


With all we been through?

For sure.

Don't put me back.
Don't let me go.

I am awake.
Wide awake.

Don't you understand?

I'm not sleeping.

I don't want to dream of another,
I only want

Always here.
Always by my side.

I am forever scared to lose you.

For this,
And all that is yet to come,
My eyes
may never close.
