These Hours

You sensed the rain

On a day like today there can only be rain

Last night you realized it was true

I was really, truly gone

You didn’t sleep a wink

No one to snore you to sleep

And you prayed today would come much more softer

And so did I

Across the universe and praying for the sun


But there is only mercy for the crops

Were stuck inside and stir crazy

There must be something better to do than stare at the phone

But I haven’t figured out what

We both know what we shouldn’t do

Why it will never be

So we count the floor tiles

And wish for sleep again


There won’t be any naps today

And no numbness will come

They’ll be no cheap escape

We’ve got to live

Go on until link by link

We become disconnected

Easier said then done


The day will end

And maybe just maybe will be worn out

No dreams will come just

Dead sleep

It’s the best we can hope for

A couple hours away from you

All of you

Every patchwork piece of you.

Every apparition of you

The End
