The past few weeks have been a bit strange for me, sort of had a momentary mental breakdown and was trying to piece myself back together. Now I’m feeling better I wanted to write something that represents a lot of the insomniac thoughts that often occur during my difficult moments.
A Letter To The Moon
I know you must leave shortly,
Don’t leave me just yet.
My eyes are heavy and will not close,
And you are … enlightening.
All is silent but the creaking of my bed,
As I rustle and hope for sleep,
And you stay there, patient,
Amongst a dark sky,
Shining brighter than the stars around you.
Your light creeps into a world closed for rest,
As I slowly abandon my hopes of sleep tonight,
I perch on my bed and admire the paintings you create.
Slipping into a hallucinatory playback of moments forgotten;
People forgotten, Places barely remembered, Memories deleted.
I like it,
I feel as if I am on every drug conceivable
And your prescence is slowing the world down
Don’t leave me just yet
Let me enjoy this brief slow motion
My eyes are heavy and will not close
And you are .. enlightening.
Your Dear Friend
