I Melt: a short poem

In the night I lay awake,

senses much too alive.

My eyes adjust despite

the moon never appears.

Clouds too busy to sleep,

too dead to fully awake,

the universe hides in gray

outside my window.

It embodies myself,

a hidden a light,

the beauty of stars

consumed by dark.

Overwhelmed still,

paralyzed between will

and nature, I lay

in sparks of want.

My body is a brick-

pressured by the grip.

I melt

under the pressure.
