SLEEP

by Nancy

thoughts
discordant
loud

a mind
uneasy
fractious

Sleep
surrenders

 exiled
to chamber shadows

grumpy

watchful

blue eyes
silvered in candlelight
stare into darkness

imagine a balcony
imagine
Her

restless
He
turns

tortured

woulds
and coulds
and shoulds

if onlys

and

why nots

a stirring of determination

planning
revising
perfecting the words

Sleep
patient
ready

disappointed
again

a great sigh
twisted bedding
thrown off
He
rises
dresses

Sleep
follows
despairing

up 18 stories
arrived

She
steps into his arms

thoughts
prepared
practiced

offered

Love’s proposal
sweetly
joyfully
accepted

Sleep
finds a corner

it will be awhile

 

for you, H

  2. Nancy, you constantly amaze me with your incredible ability to say so much with so few words. Each one is perfectly chosen and perfectly positioned, and they always flow together to paint such an amazing picture. Truly, I am in awe of your talent and insight! Thank you for sharing your gifts with all of us.
