by Gerard Lebel

Untimely, salty tears
do not deceive me…
and yet I grieve losing you.

Your lackluster dreams
are undeserving of my sleep interrupted…
and yet I cannot sleep.

My despair is transitory
as slumber beckons once again…
and yet the inherent, crushing ache continues.

I hunger for your touch
as the pillow captures your scent still
and you return to my bed
as a thief in the night…


to steal my heart yet again…
and again…
and again.
