Keeping You Up

I don’t think I’ll ever get tired

Of writing for you.

How can I,

When you are full of such things

Worth writing about?

I always hope you notice,

How cautious I am with the things I say.

I often stumble on my words,

I trip and prance around them

Until I land on ones that are right.

It would be so tragic, you see,

If I were to drag you along a paragraph

That fills you with discomfort.

So I wonder every night,

What sound sentences,

What pastel prose can I haunt you with?

What can I say that would stay with you

Until your eyes welcomed sleep?

  1. You know those really cool places we could hang out in? Those old bookstores or the back of the library with the mug of coffee or stories from years ago that still haunt us? Your blog’s a kind of place like that. The kind of comfort that’s hard to find but easy to appreciate. I bet your words make pillows for so many to sleep right on. The warm fluffly kind of ones πŸ™‚
