On this mid autumns song……

There is no rest in sleep
Born from a poets heart
A wanderers mind
And a lovers soul

I miss you like the leaves
Miss the springs sun
After the warms rains have
Washed the detritus
from the day
As the cool autumn night
Guides the inborn fire of life
Taking seed, once again
So do the stars flirt high above

I yearn for you as the sands cries
each time the waves say goodbye
Just as the moon slips far from sight
Only to give way to his lovers dawn
Each breath my last till the next
Takes it place by your side as I
Desire to be but can not.
On this mid autumns song……

  1. A poignant but good poem, Benjamin.

    Sometimes I think I should start an insomniacs’ cafe where people can come when they can’t sleep at night. I think all of us with catastrophic or chronic illness have sleepless nights. We are always under seige.


  2. Your poem has reminded me how much I miss being close to nature… it is so rich in feeling and metaphor ~ longing and love. I will need to get to the woods soon I think… it’s been a while. Thank you dear friend~

  3. So poignant and lovely, dear heart. I do hope you can open a place for us insomniacs… it feels so lonely to be in pain in the middle of the night, alone, i find myself online but sometimes, the flickering screen makes me really feel nobody’s home.

    much love and sleep, dear friend. XOX
