A Poem

purple sky

I’m used to being up when you’re asleep

it gets worse the closer you are to me

 

the world spins under your gentle breathing

no one knows what you are dreaming

miles away, I’m far from sleeping

tonight you are not mine

 

purple sky outside your window

worries on the bedside table

everything can wait til tomorrow

but tonight you are not mine

 

another day spent on your feet

and I’m not beside you

warm in bed, sound asleep

and I’m thinking of you

 

the world spins under your gentle breathing

no one knows what you are dreaming

miles away, I’m far from sleeping

tonight you are not mine

 

I’m used to being up when you’re asleep

It gets worse the closer you are to me
