WIDE.AWAKE

Sleep holds me close

Like a lost never-ever lover

Forever a dream

No longer reality.

My subconscious burns

His memory in my brain

Cold dusk and bright dawn

Oxymorons of the mind.

I shut my eyes to the world

But, in my head I’m still a pearl

Sheep jump hurdles while I swirl

Fast asleep — the heart keeps beating.

You are mine and I am yours

For now, apart and still sore

Achy hearts make better scores

Soundtrack to life plays on repeat.

I’m wide awake.
