i cannot sleep
and most certainly stay asleep-
with the black edged creatures
trembling at the corners
to trap me in tendrils of nightmare,
i shift too emptily for peace.

i cannot brave an appointment
a shower
a meal
a night
alone;
i need hands to hold
and guide
this broken ship
caught in the waves with no crests.

i forget about the things i love,

but things i hate include
how i am haunted everyday
by him,
how i cannot seem
to call him by name
or directly address him-
there is no "you"
in my words,
only fear and flashbacks.

i cannot leave an unfinished crossword out of my thoughts
just like a relationship that had tapered off;
i cannot let go of things that have melted into my grip;
i cannot break a heart
without breaking
my own.
partially written now, partially written awhile ago

I like it , I relate  to it,  and as heartfelt as it sounds I here strength??   I am not certain if it comes from "partially written now,  or from you  writing it partially awhile ago"?
So you talk with your words?  Must be hard on a conversation? In some of the things written I feel jaggedness  but what seems like always I am certain I am wrong.____-duck:heart:
