Sleeping Awake

When I cant sleep,

I look to my left,

spare no star as I hear u speak,

words weigh with heft.

Whisper of a time when we loved,

a time we looked up, we held, pulled and shoved,

swim in my arms, guard down,

we give up.

Touch to give a definition,

I define my name,

you define your ambition,

we're tied in this game.

Entangled and twisted,

intertwine with me,

you breathe a rush of bliss,

wrapped up, we are free.

Quiver and shake,

no nerve gone untouched, longing to see you again tomorrow,

it is a shame i had to awake,

I wait to rest my eyes again, one more full

sun of sorrow.

Let time flow into night's stream,

eager to see you again,

when I dream.

  I like the child play behind these rhymes. I really think you should explore this aspect more.

"Entangled and twisted,
Quiver and shake"

I think you should try your hand at more wordplay like this.

I've started posting again on this site. Any feedback on my new poems would be highly appreciated as I haven't posted anything in ages. My newest one is also a love poem. I think you might enjoy it...

  Delightful poetic write that does a good job of describing those romantic dreams where our dream lover fades into nothingness as we are awakened. One wishes she were there, hiding, and just waiting to join us again when we return to sleep!

Nice work!
