Sunrise

It’s around that time again
Just before sunrise,
When solitude sets in.
 
You have a way of crossing my mind
And pausing momentarily,
Long enough for your memories to linger.
 
At this time I’ve written my best odes,
Because you’re at center stage
And there’s a climax of emotions.
 
You’re in the way I hold my pen
And the way sheets of paper attune to my handwriting,
You embody every fraction of spilled ink.
 
I’m jealous of your thoughts,
And I wonder if somehow I’m featured in them
I’m jealous because they seem closer to you.
 
I’m looking for ways to stop thinking of you
Just before sunrise,
When solitude sets in.
– Smyekh David-West.
