Tonight, The Clock Blinks Its Digital Green - Poem by kimberly craig
tonight, the clock blinnks its digital green
2: 06 it exclaims as if it's silent time passing should
ease my desire andmake me conscious of the time slipping
so quietly by
i should be well into slumber, but no
thoughts of you and your wonderfulness haunt me
into the wee morning hours
God, please rest this weary body, i pray
but to seemingly no avail
nothing can erase the thoughts of you that invade my mind
why must you continue to torment me?
do i do the same to you?
i hope so, if i am unable to sleep, then you
the reason for my insomnia should also be awake
please let me rest
isn't it enough that you command the attention
of my every waking moment?
why do you feel the need to control my every hour?
will it ever end? will it ever stop?
time has come and passed, but still the memories are with me
just when i imagined them to be fading
they return, with more stregnth, more control
is there no end, no relief
the only relief i seek is enfolded in your loving arms
only then will i be able to ease peacefully into sleep
