The Unsleep


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words. ~Robert Frost


The Unsleep
(Thoughts During)

by CJ Heck

two o'clock
in the morning
he's snoring
like a buzz saw
my mind is full
of the day
again
gotta get some sleep
it's just out of reach
there
beyond those thoughts
I can almost feel it
almost taste it
no
slipping away again
funny
you get so close
damn brain
can't turn it off
it's late
have to sleep
much to do tomorrow
think of love
comforting
warm
fuzzy
sensual too
like making love
in the morning
hell
like making love
at night
at noon
damn
any time
anywhere
the way he feels
inside
the hard slow pace
then the faster
oh man
how about
when he just stops?
how that makes me
stop it!
enough already
get some sleep!

then again

I could
just roll over
and wake him up

mmmm
love at 2 a.m.
maybe then
I can get some sleep.

Poetry is plucking at the heartstrings, and making music with them. ~Dennis Gabor

The penning and the image fuse together as one creating a symphony of words - this is an exceptional write.
