i want

i want peace

the unrelenting

slap of the wind

that shears off tears

whipping fragrances along

and unfurling

yesterday’s dreams

 

i want solitude

but human connection

that need, eventually gives way

weakness for sport

tense nerves combining

chill seeping into warmth

 

i want sleep

no longer the ability to think

but rather categorize

random tidbits

slough off today, yesterday, tomorrow

and instead let sink

restless activity

life’s phases at the brink

01/22/16

This poem was meant for Friday, but my Internet wasn’t being cooperative. So here’s yesterday’s post with another one to come.
