Baby, I Couldn’t  Sleep

.



I wanted to
whisper these words
in your ears
on the valentine
morning

instead
I stayed
awake the
whole night

watching
you

I watched
how the sun rays
peaked from the
half opened window curtains
and shine
on your hair

how the light slowly
chased out the shadow
from your head to toes

your skin is pale
paler than it used to be

its calm
and silent
with the
the aroma of
incense sticks

I’m still watching you
your curves on the bed

you haven’t moved
in a long time

I’m  still watching you
sitting here
foot on the
edge of the bed

tapping the knife
on the table
to the drips
from your
hand

without any
thoughts

just
emptiness

baby
I just
couldn’t
sleep
