NaPoWriMo – Day 6

She doesn’t spend the night.
I never see her sleep,
I see her make love and have sex,
drink and drown
in wine and wanting
but she never spends the night.

I never see her sleep.

I sleep. I sleep and dream
about holding her closely
but she will never fall in love,
never wrap herself around my body
unless she’s in ecstasy,
would never wrap her heart around mine.

I never see her sleep.

I’m sure it comes, with exhaustion
collapsing into slumber rather falling
I never see it. I never see her.
I only feel, twisting and pressing
into me but never for long.
I never see her stay.

I never see her sleep.

I see her laugh and be happy,
like it’s really reaching down deep
even if I don’t believe it
because I don’t see it.
I never feel her any more,
not down deep any more.

I never see her sleep.

She never sees me cry.
