Sleepless




What do I seek in the darkness
Under the starry firmament,
Wakeful for nights endless,
When into bossomy imaginings other are lent
                           
What do I adore in the aching
Of loneliness bequeathed from ages,
Pending with the very breath,
Which inside me rages

What baits me into its fold,
Veiled as it is imperceptible
Awaiting my notice it lurks bold,
Utterly vague yet throbbing n' formidable

What wanes alongside the moon
That I forget the question too soon
Before I know the cause of it all
It picks on my restless soul

Feeding for eons on my vanity
Now like a silent climax
Like a torrid necessity
I keep at it bereft of sanity

  1. Beautiful and insightful,

    What do I adore in the aching
    Of loneliness bequeathed from ages,
    Pending with my very breathing,
    Which inside me rages.....loved these lines.
