I Sleep In Darkness Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan

I Sleep In Darkness

Rating: 5.0

i sleep in darkness
it's no pleasure
it's more emptiness
than love and leisure

the dreams don't come yet
and I'm listening like mad
to what? i don't know

deep cascading water
flows through the deep realm
i'm listening
but above all
i watch and
i observe

you're right
distance really exists
but not in our dream-dom

distance really exists enorm
that's waking up
in our dream-dom
heart distance equals
so true as ever

you told me that!
and i am convinced,
my heart is happiest eversince!

Yes, distance really exists yet when someone is in our hearts, we will never miss his / her absence. Our love will close the gap between us. A beautiful poem brilliantly woven. To my Poem List.

Through our sleep, a dream may come and it can bridge the distance for a loved one even if it is just ephemeral.
