Sleepless Nights

Sleepless Nights

A Poem by J. Storm
"

A night alone with me in my head

"
You come to me when I sleep,
Skirting around the edges of my dreams.
I see your faces twisted and contorted onto objects and bodies that are not yours.
When I reach out to touch you everyhing dissipates and I'm awoken with the tears in my eyes.
You're becoming a dead memory, A fading feeling in my heart.
I can barely see your faces anymore, hear your laughter or cries.
I rip everything down around me that reminds me of you.
You're a dead memory to me me, a faded feeling, a tremor in my heart that has left it's mark.
I will never forget either of you but I will take a step forward.

'I rip everything down around me that reminds me of you'
Very powerful how quickly how you flipped the meaning of dead memory from a longing to reunite to a rejection, especially how it alluded to the 'dead to me' phrase. Very intrigued by face being a plural too: multiple people, multiple expressions/memories? And really good free verse flowed brilliantly, and found the rhyme of 'eyes' and 'cries' really well placed.
