i’m not falling asleep;
the freight train passes through
slumbered harvested fields.
a distant gate lowers as the whistle blows.
blinking lights blinds flashes,
and i am not falling asleep.
London sirens sounded
as the last kiss grounded.
closed eyed years that pass
i found you there;
and now in the missing i hope for you.
boarders call out such
and found me without.
i had it all in a hush
and yet eventually left me without much
I’m not falling asleep;
day dreaming where everyone’s got something.
interstate miles date;
and sink within all your jet sets,
lights, camera, action to all skyscraper lifts
once where i was typing through blank pages
where i read through rough copies;
through all fictional capers
there somewhere did it all live once
in true heart beating,
i set my eyes on you
but i am not falling asleep
