Starless nights, clouded skies, darkness
Awakened, bed rising, I feel the void,
Many trials to overcome. In this, I am
Not alone, others like me, sleepless
Nights, yet we face troubles all alone.
Mine is haunting separation, beyond
Control. She is here, then she’s gone,
No words, no texts, no telephone calls.
World so connected, by her choosing,
We are not, she sleeps when I cannot.
Written during night thunderstorms.
Thanks for reading.
