There is darkness and stillness outside.
I didn’t kiss you Goodnight because I was overwhelmed with exhaustion,
falling quite suddenly,
into a deep and lonely sleep,
at about half nine,
and now it’s almost five AM,
and I am in my garden,
listening to the whispers of the wind,
early birdsong and the talking of the trees behind my house.
I want to hear your voice.
Just for a second,
I want to hear it,
I want it to surround me,
the way it does when I am next to you,
engulfed in emotion, passion,
passing from the real world to my dream world.
I go so many places when I’m in your arms,
but when I am alone,
I am stagnant,
stuck in solitude.
