Sleep

(First line excerpt from Robert Frost poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening)

“And miles to go before I sleep.”
I don’t sleep
Maybe I’ve forgotten how
Maybe it’s because in my dreams is where the memories of you I keep.
Your eyes pull me into them…
Drowning in the deep
Running through the woods being chased by the shadows of my mind.
You’re alive but you’re the ghost that takes up all of my time.
How can I lose you when you showed me how to be alive?
Breathed life into my empty shell
Pulled me out of the fires of my hell
Now I’ve lost you to time except for when I’m asleep.
