Sleep

My Unexcused Life

sleep

Beautiful.  Serene.  Calming.
All healing, revitalizing,
a stunning, strong and elusive woman.

Dressed all in black.
The only colors, her eyes of vivid green,
and the white of her face.

I cannot catch her.  Not these past two months.
Yearning, begging, lusting after her comfort,
yet she dances away…and.beyond my reach.

Leaving me panting, exhausted.
And facing each day, empty,
a shell of my former self.
