“And as you sleep, I lie awake, and
watch the world go by.
It sits and stirs and sleeps and
wakes, just like a little bird.
The night calls to me, and oh so
slowly, I follow in its wake.
But light calls to me, runs right
through me and I stay awake all
I watch you rest, I breathe you in,
and nothing ever changes.
My love for you, it too runs through,
and there’s nothing to do about it.
I like awake, I wait through time, I sit
and stare some more.
But the dark comes swiftly, without
me seeing, and I am never more.”
Ah poetry, you fickle bitch. That’s a poem by yours truly, I like parts of it, not the worst of the worst, but it will never be my forte.
