sleepyskin's Diaryland Diary

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

seen in the night

the first cold of the year and everything
is remaining quite stagnant.
among the glistening of hoarfrost on my fence,
on my car, in the trees
I walk slowly home with the crunch, crunch
under my feet.
I kept saying that everything was wrong and
you didn't console me like I thought
I needed to be.
I didn't feel selfish until today,
realizing
not everything is wrong.
it's just you. it's just that
you are the only thing that hasn't
broken, ruptured, escaped, or failed.
so in my restless, over-drunk sleep I dreamed
of your arms, of your lips and they way
they curve and move when you say
I love you.
I dreamed of everything in the future tense where
you leave, you walk away, where
the frost melts underneath your feet and my
lonely, so alone breath
is seen in the night.
