WHERE DID YOU SLEEP LAST NIGHT

Favim.com-36130

I wake up sunny rays melting my yawn
Your side of the bed is empty, unruffled with your pillow intact
A sudden panic grips my chest, i have no memory of last night
Somehow my eyes are puffy my nose a bit runny
I must have cried myself to sleep
Could it be because you were not there
Heart thumping i run out the bedroom door

HE CRIED SEEING HER COMING

He knew he was to be a man
Yet his eyes watered without a care
His life was about to change
Happiness he yearned was to be his
Life had been kind to him
Love had favored his heart
Everything else sank to oblivion

SAYING GOODBYE AT THE TRAIN STATION

The chest that i found comfort, serenity, sanity, a sweet madness even
Is slowly becoming a distant memory
Sounds slowly disappear
People stop moving in a motion i know
A bird’s feather slowly drifts to the ground
As if knowing my heart is thudding

Rain has been elusive
Mother tries
The hard ground will not relent
Even animals look at the sky
Despair written in their eyes
Heaven will not sleep tonight
Until your heart is settled

YOU SAID YOU’D CALL

all

You promised to call me tonight after we fought
More than a thousand miles separate us
The distance tells me you are my everything
3:00pm a burnt orange dusk prepares my heart
4:00pm I watch as the sun sets knowing i will hear your voice
5:00pm I still wait counting the minutes ticking away
6:00pm My heart has began to wobble and worry
7:00pm My arms want to reach for my phone
