Love, romance /
I Do Not SleepI do not sleep.
I do not sleep because I think of you.
I cannot sleep because my mind misses the touch of your smile.
I do not sleep because I dream of you.
Because you are always here, and yet, you are not.
Every night you are by my side and yet, you are not.
It's not right that I get to have paradise only as I sleep.
Because when I sleep, you are mine.
But you are not.
And my heart misses the the ways your voice would sing it to sleep.
When you speak to me, I only hear angels.
And I wonder how you could be so lost.
To be here with me.
But you are not with me.
So I do not sleep.
I cannot sleep because I love you.
And you are not mine.Unpublished Work Copyright 2017 M. Nioni
A really lovely piece, translated from your previous poem

Thank you Michael! I've had a lack of inspiration and drive lately so I'm glad that this one turned out well.
I totally get this
I'm glad that I'm still in the swing of things. It's been a while since I've posted on here.
I thank you for taking the time to leave your opinion on my work.
