July and moonlight

by *Sherrie*   Jul 11, 2005

I sit very still and let
things like
July and midnight consume me
in the background
a cold chill
saturates my thoughts;

it's two forty
in the morning &
he called
six times.

doesn’t speak
his own words

but he told me one time that
he only sleeps
when he is tired
for many seconds
this made perfect sense

so much that
I felt
I could taste the sky

    Different layout but it worked well. I liked the breaks and the very short stanzas. It was a good poem and I was ready to go through tons more but then it ended :( 5/5 for a real unique poem

    What are you scared that your going to get kicked off the site for using someone else's poems.. Isn't it funny that you said you wrote it and then all of a sudden it just disapears??

    Intersting set-up. I liked it but I think I have read better from you. But it was a unquie in its own way. Great work
