flash of light in the evening sky

photo-1437532437759-a0ce0535dfedbattling to fall asleep, thoughts drift to your thoughts;

and if the mind spins with feelings, and memories, and evolves to exhaustion,
-or to strength;

if the heart longs for eternal or lost love, and moves to brokenness,
-or to acceptance;

if the bedridden body desires movement, and motion, and evolves to irritated atrophy,
-or to peaceful rest;

and, above all, how this electric light, that streaks so brightly,
can exist so temporarily?
