Dusk Sonnet 1

by courtvanhaaren

The night keeps your memory by my side

A welcome ghost in the wake of your leave

I can’t touch you thought I admit I tried

Laying still I close my own eyes and grieve. 

Daylight will break and show you’re gone once more 

The bitter taste of your name on my lips

Worn from the endless calling I am sure 

The light shines through and reality takes it’s grip.

What a toll the days have on me anymore

When it is you that is all I ask for.
