Writing in the Dark

Writing in the dark

fingers wrapped around a thought

writing in the dark

partner sleeping sensing naught


Straining in the dark

to phrase a wish into a line

that in the cold clear light of day

may turn his eyes to look in mine


Writing in the dark

my pen unnoticed has no ink

my wish like aspirin disappears

dissolved again, gone in a blink


Writing my dream, writing on air

as partner sleeps on unaware
