"Insomnia" - 8/12/11

can't sleep

somewhere in the back of my mind

is an aching that stings

like a spiritual migraine

realizing suddenly as often as we've made love

you've never used the word and denial is a wasp

deafening church bells clanging oh goddess

misery help me breathe through this moment

of awe where I recognize I may be soul-alone

an ice sculpture dancing frozen

better left

to thaw
