Sleep Light

from by Darren Jilks



You left the blood on the wall
You took the weight of the fall
Made yourself hard to ignore
You knew something

I can't relate to the mind
That lays it all on the line
To find a shoulder to lie
Missing something

Say you're not leaving
Then I'm not sleeping

I kept the blood from you
Always at the edge of my mind
Trying to focus the light
I found something

The imperfections were always unexpected
Your fire, when not connected to mine
It missed something

You won't be leaving tonight
So I'll be sleeping light
If I'm sleeping at all
