Along The Corridors Of My Autumn Awakeness  4.26 / 5

I hide in sleeplessness from thoughts about you

You easily inhabit dreams,

Lock yourself inside them

And toss the keys outside the window

That’s why I walk the corridors

Of my autumn awakeness.

Sleeplessness engulfs me like a drug

I’m seeing things. I pass past fish,

Blinking in tact with their gills.

I put your name in words, try to decode its anagram

I scribble it in chalk along the corridors, I trace.

And, running now, I am approaching

The tumult of my heart,

To comprehend how thoughts about you

Get encoded

In the pauses

Between each heartbeat.
