Insomnia

Is it a song that keeps ringing in your mind ?

Or is it just a train of thought that winds ?

Like a clock, tick rock, time slowly flies.

You hear the crickets chirp, the dogs bark, as you simply lie

Eyes open wide

Thoughts flying high

‘What if’s, ‘if not’s and whatnot.

You desperately call out to sleep, but it doesn’t come to your aid;

You try counting to hundred, but the numbers fade.

Instead, thoughts so deep fill your brain;

“How was the universe formed?”

And so on. 

You finally nod off, but all of a sudden, a sliver of light

Penetrates the window, now it’s too bright. 

Exasperation fills your heart

As you’re already off to a rocky start.

You finally realize that, though it’s funny,

Not all things can be bought with money.

Gunshot.

He was his world. He loved him dearly. He was his other half, the one who completed his soul. He gazed into his eyes, knowing he had everything he could ever ask for.

Then, a gunshot fired.             

A gunshot of celebration.                   

It was the day of their wedding.

(A dedication to the souls who were shot in Orlando today, this is the only gunshot you actually deserve. Not fatal ones. Fuck homophobes. #RIP)

I’ve missed you.

I’ve missed your luring scent;

I’ve missed your supple touch against my fingers;

I’ve missed the way I used to get lost in you;

I’ve missed all the waiting I’ve done just to see you;

I’ve missed all the nights together;

Everything else was obscured when we were together;

Oh, how I long for all those days, nights, and hours !

Social media took you away from me.

Oh books, I really should begin reading you like before.
