day 265

in the night, squid ink dark
sleep fled, mind full of thought
unrelenting conscious wrought
of all i’m yet to embark

rest had left me bare and cold
i shiver in my hopes for more
the warmth of two, love endure
night wanes, day soon unfolds

succumb to wake, i try to rise
my bed now closed to slumber
sweet dreams have been encumbered
i face the day with weary eyes
