Sleepless

I remember,
I could never
really sleep ~
my restless heart
fluttered awake,
as soon as
my eyes closed ~
wanting to know
if you ever did
think of me;

I knew,
still I couldn’t sleep ~
I knew,
but I couldn’t sit back ~
I knew,
yet I didn’t know ~
Not enough to calm
my insomniac heart.

I remember,
I could never
really catch you
staring at me ~
rare as it was,
I believed that
it was happening
just as I was being
destroyed in depth…

I knew
that it was happening,
I knew
that I’m just missing it;
I knew,
yet I didn’t know ~
not enough to tranquilize
my turbulent mind…

I remember,
I could never
really sleep ~
lest that’s all
I will ever do
forever;
even as you go on
sleeping with that
sweet smile of yours…
