Sleepless

Sometimes, my mind turns on and a million questions flood and keep going.
Sometimes a loud noise or sudden sound will awaken me from deep sleep and then my mind wanders and goes down the infinite bunny holes it can create.
And then…there are the times I fall asleep slowly and just don’t really sleep and a quiet noise pulls me out it and I stare blankly at the ceiling wondering about too much and not enough to make my mind go silent.

No, I don’t have insomnia. I just lose sleep once in a while…
And tonight is one of those nights…
It happens.
But now I have to try to get sleep before the dawn breaks and I don’t know if my mind will cease for a bit….
Too many questions run amok in my brain and the person I want to ask them all to doesn’t even know I exist or  ignores the fact I do…like I am some ghost.
It makes me ask more questions.
Deep questions emotional questions things that I don’t have answers to.

Sleepless I am tonight…

Dreams



Are you running, are you chasing?
Do you see the moments where we meet?

This is the plane where I escape,
Drifting among the stars and seeing the earth from afar.
Space is clear, and bright, the moon gleaming.
There you are, alone and vacant in the sky.

Are you running, are you chasing?
Do you see the moments where we meet?

The jungle encloses around you,
Echoes of the past screech at your heels.
Deep sense of fear seeps like the raindrops from the season,
Torrents of water stream from the leave above.

Are you running, are you chasing?
Do you see the moments where we meet?

The waters are rising around you,
The flash flood is overcoming,
Desperation seeks it’s hope,
Where the land meets the water there is someone…

Are you running, are you chasing?
Do you see the moments where we meet?

The air feels cool and damp against your face,
Ice falls from the sky,
Gentle moments recall memories,
Moments that are not long gone.

Are you running, are you chasing?
Do you see the moments where we meet?

Darkness drowns the rest out,
A deep dark void,
A light that never ends,
Shines just for you.

Are you running, are you chasing?
Do you see the moments where we meet?

You awaken, you look, you see…
Do you remember me?

Two New Poems

I come, weary. 
 

Simply I walk oblivious to the space,
Drowning in this consciousness,
Beating the soul to shards,
While wasting in wailing,
The depths of despair are wrought,
The breaking of the heart is heard.
More painful than anything else,
Many different emotions let loose,
A rushing torrent cascades from the soul,
Longing, desire, fear, shame, pain,
Love hope dreams and strange joy and peace.
Feelings that express the myriad,
The seas of uneasiness in the heart.
Sanity seems to at last return
Or what seems to be sanity
But there was always this glimmer,
A light a far that always brought hope.
So, back to the toil I go.
Hope my source of energy.

“Walking Away”

I need to walk away for a little while…
I see the need and desire but I don’t want to be there.
A place that is unsafe and it scares me.

Yes…I need to walk away for a little while.
I’ll see you soon enough…
But for now…I need to be still among the trees.
There I normally find comfort…
But the trees even taunt me.
There I usually feel the breeze but it haunts.

Where will I walk without these thoughts?
Where can I be settled again?
Calm my heart, my mind, and soul…
