Do You Feel Alive?


do you still hear a train
out your window?
though it's only desert and rocks
and a fantastic sunrise
you probably never see
because you like to sleep,
like me.

you probably stay up late every night
listening to the dark
how comforting it can be, or is-

the stars are nicer than the sun-
moonshine tastes better through a shutter-
writing your mood with a keyboard
feels alive
after eleven pm-

i think you agree
to a degree
which is why i never understood those paths
you spent years putting me on
when all i wanted was to stay
or go with you

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
