Me With You

I lay here in the darkness.
I lie in the suffocating stillness of my bedroom,
with only
my thoughts
of you.

I cannot breathe.
I reach for the dusty white fan on my tall oak dresser.
Blades whir,
winds blow.
Now dreams
of you.

Unable to sleep I dream without dreams.
Piece by piece I articulate each movement:
perfect time,
perfect place,
perfect words,
perfect you.

Swimming in my subconscious I conjugate what I would say to you.
I wish ever so deeply for what you would say to me.
small me.
Lighted hope.
Glowing you.

As my final ode to you, the one I love, I write them down on paper and hope the will come true.
I hope that my unrelenting begging will make it be so.
Missing keys.
Found locks.
You with me.
Me with you.

The author's comments:
I thought of this while lying in bed one night, figuring that the darkness of being alone at night gives every one a little too much time to think, especially when there's someone special.

It is better to write for yourself and have no audience than write for your audience and have no self.
