Tag Archives: Sleeplessness


When sleep is broken
By undisclosed memories
Haunting a tepid brain
To wakefulness, watchfulness
And the moon plays host
Somewhere other than my window
The stars dancing, shimmering
In another wide awake sky
The heart will ache for slumber’s
Protective cover, while
Summer’s sultry song leaves
Bare a body longing for
The promise in the
Movement from even
The slightest breeze
To cool this soul’s skin
