A Day After a Night With No Sleep

I walked the streets
Littered civilization
Under my feet
I kept the time
By the passing buses
The wind in the rushes
Singing sing songs
From the balcony
She called my name
I remembered later
It wasn’t the same
I staked my miles
By the beats
You breathed
I took my cues
From the kites
In the trees
Forever did not seem
Long enough
The land was too bright
The faces too clean
I longed for night
The day was too mean
For insomniacs
On the boulevards
Time’s not enough
Without sleep
Without dreams
