Slumber


I cannot stay awake tonight
To pen the words I long to write
So I will hold you close to me
In sweeter strains of poetry

The perfect line eludes me now
Though I can hear the night-winds blow
It's inspiration falls awry
Unwoven strands swept to the sky

The pen slips softly from my grasp
I turn to slumber in your clasp
As love and loss slip over me
In unrequited poetry
