outside the morning chorus―

with you there―”

between the cracking clouds above― strained

those star fuelled dreams― stripped
back to atoms across the night
sky in iridescent tones― of nimble highs―”

calmly cascaded tears into eternal waters,
where I sat in solitude, waiting ephemerally,
for those hours of lost comfort once again,
how long ago did sleep become such an end?”
Phen Weston, Under the Rose
