The Night Shift

Tiredness lurks in every cell of my body,

Yet I am forcing my eyes to stay seeing, my ears to stay hearing and my heart to stay beating,

For I have left you in the midst of my slumber and the start of your waking,

Yet I am not ready to leave for an unconscious world where you may not be.

My heart beats faster, my mind thinks slower and maybe this is the way it should be, for now the reasoning of the mind has little power in taking over the desires of the heart. And you are the desire of mine.

Yet you flurry away like snow in the wind, like palm leaves wavering across the heat of the sun whilst I lay in its shade.

I am desperate not to care in my slumber but all I want is you and I wish you’d want me too.
