Couldn't Sleep...

Don't usually like to post two poems in a row, but I woke up and had to jot this down... (freewritten again)
.....................................................................................

In The Wake of This
-------------------------------------
I wake and it's not to your face
though in vain I search the darkness
with slow heavy eyes
though I feel through the black of night
with numb unsteady hands
I will never reach you again, will I?
Your smile will never again wait
for me to wake
And in the wake of this
my heart beats like a funeral march
And I am dead without you
though you live and life goes on
for you so cruelly
I'm burried by the memories
heaped upon my shoulders
like so many handfuls of dirt
6 feet under, barely breathing
in this dark place I cannot sleep
If dreams could bring you back again
If the night could just take on your shape
and wrap around me like your loving arms
once did
I swear, I'd stay in darkness
I swear, I'd wish to never wake...

had to write more... it just keeps coming to me:

Still awake, I thought that I was dreaming,
but even my dreams elude me,
even they cruelly taunt me
with the empty promise of bringing me back
to where I was
Regret had always been foreign to me
but now it's a close and lasting friend
This love will be the end of me...

laughter is exquisite and the touch of love is painful
but when an individual touches you with life.
you can spin upon hours only to come to a stand still and just ask for yourself
"turn me once more"..falling feathers from the angel's wings took you into the clouds
and showed the only beauty out of breathing in the world- love that can be blind, I have seen!
