Insomniac Fool - Poem by RIC BASTASA

i look again at you
today, it will not be the last
of course,
i am always punished
by feeling
to you, and i argue with myself
why? what is in you that
i should love you?
never mind me, there is never
a reason that
you will..... but i look again at you,
there are no reasons,
there is no single reason why
i must love you
i win the argument against

tonight, i shall die again
because i cannot forget you
and i shall always be at the mercy of
your indifference
which i
of course, perfectly understand

the night wins again
i am dying to get a glimpse of
what sleep
looks alike
