White Night

O sleepless dawn
These streets spread along
Jump jump jump
This rope of sleep
I want to stay awake
And smile at the sun
As it hurts my eyes
Why leave on me 
When the rest are asleep
O sleepless dawn

Your moisture crawls 
On my head and feet
And damps my clothes
And licks my cheeks
Why leave on me
O sleepless dawn
When the rest are asleep

I want to wander aimlessly
In the morning light
Like a moth would roam
Around a neon light
I want to sit on cars
And catch some sight
Of slumbering eyes
O sleepless dawn
I want to stay awake
When the rest are asleep

I want to scratch my
Ears and sit on dirt
Perhaps walk barefoot
On this sullen earth
I want to sprint and sweat
And break and flee 
O sleepless dawn
Why leave on me

As I watch your rays
In the sky break free
With shadows dancing
Inside of me 
I want to be alone
In this secluded delight
O sleepless dawn
Why not hide your light
From all the rest that
Are asleep

    This is yet another of awesome poems you have written. Believe me Farah, it is a treat to read your work. "I want to be alone in this secluded delight" is such a beautiful expression. I am simply charmed. Thanks also for your alluring comments on my poem Loveless Life. -Mohammad

    oh, what I just referred to was a beautiful song from my youth, sung by a group called MoodyBlues.

    no wonder you summoned me. yes, this is good. it is a masterpiece. i would'nt change a line. and i'm not judging it on your level. on a profesional level this did reach my heart and i felt the pulse of it beating. and i think i got your meaning. as you connected with God and words. with simplicity you are being heard.
