Anticipation

I do not sleep, I just exist.
My headstone sinks deeper into the bed as my body follows through-
But my heart elates and pulsates, rises to the softly settled stars
Embedded in the sky, a thousand days of navy-blue night
Between you and me,
Like an endless sea cascading off the edge off the world.

I cannot rest, I've lost the will to move.
Eyes dare not give into temptation, frail wants and will-be's
Tease the outer-Hebrides of patchwork insanity.
I've only fear and curiosity to entertain an empty possibility
Between you and me,
Like a deep stewed lagoon concealing mermaid's magic sight.
