A Poem by Austin Skye Elsborg

Here's my latest sonnet. I'm not sure if it makes any sense.

In your dreams I stay awake 
Restlessly wander in your head 
In your mind my body will shake 
Curling under the covers of your bed
Without you here emptiness will creep
Filling me up and pulling me down
In the corner lies your things in a heap
Waiting for you to return from town
The hallways are silent in the house
Memories drift across the floors
The fires of loneliness they douse
Thoughts of you then sooth the sores
Helping the aches my broken heart
The one I had, that you tore apart.

I never realize just how much of me I put into my writing until I reread it all. Then I know, and it's much more then I thought. more..
