35 sleepless lines

a lack of sleep
a lack of you
a lack of sense
to sense
the need for sleep
when all i want
is you

manic and alone
vibrating
at the speed of desire
times the thin membrane
around my brain
etched
with your name

i cut out
the best pieces
of myself
and sketched
in the blood
to draw your heart
to mine

i carved the words
of love
into my skin
and bathed
in an ocean
of salty tears
all to catch your eye

now i don’t sleep
don’t eat
don’t think
without you
dancing across the stage
as i stage another reenactment
to summon you to me
