Unable to sleep, I wrote two poems.
With no refuge, unrequited love
without heavenly haven,
without healing, without beginning
or end. When a kiss is not a kiss,
when one love is lost in lonely
pain, unable to mend.
how can we ever be happy
alone in this depressing darkness
void of all meaningful life
enduring these threats from a determined death
never knowing how or when, it will all end?
Look both ways, the yin and the yang.
Mind the gap hiding good news and bad.

Can’t say I LIKE either of these pieces, LIKE isn’t the right emotion, but they are powerful, effective works.

I would have preferred sleep. They are dark. Unrequited love is from a song (one of hundreds on the subject). The other was inspired by something I recently read. Life is good. Thanks for the comment.
