Just Let Me Sleep

Crawling into bed around

4am.

Wanting to sleep but my body won’t allow me to.

It is the worst.

Being sleepy and not being able to sleep

Because your stomach is growling

Because you haven’t eaten in three days

Because Thanksgiving is coming you are being reminded

Over and over again

That he is gone forever.

And you can’t do a thing about it.

Beautiful.

the clouds moving across the pale blue sky, dripping rain down on my patio. My cats sleeping next to each other, butt to butt, when about two years ago they couldn't stand each other. They breathe in

Cold Rush

Time to increase down the aisle. Opening up to something else that I can't see, to feel the assault of love slap me in the face.

Madness

Expressions formed on my flesh leaving being bruised marks, carried out of my sight. Sly smiles creep up my legs causing a handicap, crumbling me to the ground.
