Sleepless night contest

My mind wont sleep.
Keeps ticking over the words
that we shared on the phone,
such a silly row , absurd.

You heard me call a name
in my sleep the night before.
Accusations flying fast
even though you knew the score

Why I called his name out loud,
maybe was the pain within.
Calling the name of one dead love
Shouldnt really be a sin

Thought I was back on lifes road
Memories are stored for evermore
Would take the words back if i could
Still i knew you knew the score

Your who I am trying to love dear
Your who I want to walk lifes way
Your who i need to hold me near
Your who I want each and every day

Now I close my eyes and sleep
I have told you whats on my mind
Time to relax, my thoughts to keep
buried to make room for the new kind.

Penned july 4 2013.

    Congrats for your win, Seren. It is nice to see these winner lists and finally get a chance to view the poems written for the challenges. I think it is so silly when people get upset by this kind of thing and it sure would give rise to someone having a sleepless night for worrying over it.

    This gem really hit home for me Seren....I lost my lovely wife in 2008 and since then I have not been able to establish any kind of meaningful relationship and probably never will...Glad I read this - Tim
