unnamed.jpgIt’s hard to sleep
without you there.

Hard to stay in that
place of slumber
without the constant
hum or slight tapping
that comes with your
virtual connection.
If you hang up, I
know it and I wake
with a start in the
middle of the night,
so deep have those
invisible waves of
connection lodged them-
selves in my veins.
Sleep escapes in time
with yours, no longer
am I comforted by
your watchful eye from
a small, glowing, green
light in the darkness.

…and yet, aren’t we
all being watched on
high tech screens- from
the same little dots-
somewhere far away?

It’s hard to sleep,
knowing they’re there.
