#1
I can no longer sleep

I lay in bed
With the hours of our day
flickering in my head.

How would I have changed
conversations and actions
I never said.

Would I tell you,
Would I show you
What is playing behind my lids.

A vision of you,
Pristine in the sunlight
You bask with me.

You hold me close.
I whisper back words
I pretend I heard.

i can no longer sleep.
I swear the same thing is always on my mind.
