Random Poem:


Exhausted from it all,
  falling into the sheets, I
close my eyelids;
                                       Only to smell you.
Wafting through the miles,
  drifting through my sleep, I am
haunted by your face;
                                      Because you’re all I see.
Even during the instant replay,
  softly cursed by regret, I am
falling down once again;
                                      Dropped by the past.
The times we shared together,
  not just in your presence,
but somehow connected;
                                       That which we have lost...
Never to smell you again
  or to see your face...
Forever without you;
                                      I am fallen from grace.
