if i must sleep

how much more do we make this legend go?
i have to sleep some now against my will
i've worked it down to the last few things i know
it hurts me finding you and him there still

i have to sleep some now against my will
i want you haunting all my dreaming but
it hurts me finding you and him there still
why must i watch? why can't my eyes stay shut?

i want you haunting all my dreaming but
i know he'll run there too, he always does
why must i watch? why can't my eyes stay shut?
if dreams come true, i want them how it was

i know he'll run there too, he always does
at least if i must sleep, set no alarms
if dreams come true, i want them how it was
let sleep last until i wake up in your arms

at least if i must sleep, set no alarms
i've worked it down to the last few things i know
let sleep last until i wake up in your arms
how much more do we make this legend go?

    I love your poems. Thanks you so much for sharing yourself. I used to work in the sleeep apnea industry. But, your writings encompass so much more emotions and life experience ANYONE can relate to… such beauty, and sullen trepidation. I adore it. Again, thank you. I shall keep reading.

      thank you for reading. especially today, it meant something special that someone found any beauty in any of the storms spilling out of my head

      as always, with a grateful nod to my friend and muse, ms. wwns
