"Somnambula" - 10/21/06

it was an early
night tonight
I might've slept
I had the time
sack-clothed in traif
should have collapsed

desiring you
is not a theme
on which I'm proud
to rhapsodize
awake with all
my dauntless joy

bittersweet joke
brazen turmoil
or is it bliss
bleeding soul's stone
when all you have
should be enough

don't know myself
enough to grasp
grey sky's listless
misleading fog
with hands of hope
I wrestle faith

sleepwalker lost
longing's ocean
I long to trust
what I don't own
oh neverending

night alone
