Random Poem:

Another Dawn

Dawn breaks. I rise to wait,
for this curtain between us,
to be set aside.
As the light exposes the horizon
of our thoughts, my wish is
to see your eyes, brilliant, again.
I wish to welcome you back,
to walk with you, with joy
that belongs to pride of possession,
to revel in your details-
black hair and eyes, on your fair face-  
clear, distinct, once again;
to enjoy a small talk,
with your sanity back,
strong, no longer shaken.
But a gust has yet blown again,
the cold is back, in your eyes-
but I will try again.
