I wake up
in silky darkness
as thoughts of you
scramble all over me.
And in this indigo landscape
where reality escapes
into fantastic realms
of malleable dreams,
a fever is burning …
mercury rising.
I am consumed
by a deep gnawing hunger —
injecting meanings at meager
ambiguous moments,
caught up
in an imagined forever.
In this insane insomnia of y-o-u
I had to stop myself
from hysterically laughing,
because I know
somewhere you are sleeping
and you haven’t got a clue ….
