On My Mind

Midnight thoughts

Intrude on seductive sleep

And push it away,

Pulling my mind

Into a late night tango

Of past moments and parallels.

This exhausting dance,

My body moving to the tempo,

Keeps moving to the music

Until my legs can’t keep up.

These thoughts,

These nights,

These unforgettable moments

Make for mental messes

To be ignored- an insomniac’s gift-

Until the next late night

Where my mind won’t stop dancing

To the beats of the past.

I Shall Follow

Walking miles in their shoes-

No shoes…

Soleless Souls

Traversing treacherous terrains.


No haven in view,

But we keep walking-

I keep walking

Despite blisters brimming with blood.


Regardless of where you’re heading

I shall follow.
