Hearts of a Shade

July 29, 2012

Sleepless hearts slide through the cracks

Finding solace below the living.

Satisfied with a lot they’ve drawn

They gather thorns for roses.

Ragged hearts trudge the mundane

Searching for the roses felt

And though the light’s been seen daily,

Darkness has desires.

Sleepless hearts move between whatever they are given

Even if it’s sleep.

    …and sleep’s probably a pretty good thing to be given! I love the recurrent themes…

    Thanks, Ela! Sleep is a great gift.

    Nice. Wrote something in a similar vein recently. I like this one a lot.
