ThoughtsPosted: October 16, 2012
I should like to hold you now
Despite the yawning miles, defy
The gnawing acid of distance, perhaps
Reach out to you in your dreams, but you
Never really dream, do you?
Barred behind that impenetrable wall of sleep you
Wander off on your own, and I
Can do nothing else but wait
Till you unbar the sleep doors again the next morning
Setting those slightly bewildered eyes upon
Too much sunlight and a world that makes way too much fuss
Over unimportant things.
Maybe you will remember to stop
And dream a little tomorrow, at daybreak
In between sips of tea and
Driving to work amidst a
Honk infested city, but then again,
Remember but of me, of my thoughts
Always with you, early morning
Despite a slumber slurred voice greeting you
From the other end of countless strings of
Electromagnetic waves, coarsely spun
Of unrefined emotions that are
Generally healthier than the synthetic refineries
In plenty these days.
Remember me, of the unrefined caresses, words
Too coarse to be of plastic
In an otherwise plastic world.
