After I Fall Asleep

in #poetry4 years ago

In the warm still night,
amid the soft yellow street lamps,
shines one harsh blue light.

I avert my gaze
from glowing cracked glass
nestled in your palm.

I must rest soon.
Would you please turn that thing off?
So I can fall asleep?

Can we walk in darkness?
You can wake me in my dreams
after I get home,
after I fall sleep.

beautiful poem...

Thanks! I'm still trying to figure out what sort of writing I'm best at, and while I really like poetry I feel like it takes too long per word to write :/
