Sunshine

i was clearly unconscious
observation incoherent

feeling so fine just like today
yet he caught me comatose

end of summer blue skies
hot sun warmth and fire

coming too close he
started and stirred a spark

his hello handshake
stole my standing slumber

sleepy senses scream
so soft a rousing

now i want him
in the worse way

unwhole i am
unlike before

wondering why
and will we

love leaves loudly

quietly closing the car door she soon grasped the full impact of sleepless  nights. speaking out loud to no one in particular, “it’s either him or me. his slightly open sleepy mouth, no more.” after nights of constant torment there was no other conclusion. her quiet ways had proved to be a snare. together alone it mattered little. turning the key the engine purred softly. backing out of their driveway in the early hours before dawn her blue-green eyes began to change. good-bye tears fell flowing over falling silent wetting her chin onto her now cool nightgown. the epitasis his constant vibrating sonorous snores.
