sock it


Literary Corner


sitting here at my computer terminal late at night
wearing your blue shirt
and listening to a song called closer to fine
my sleep-deprived mind
is quite seriously considering
running barefoot under the stars all the way to lambeth
just to wish you goodnight
but then the more rational reasonable part
of my mind tells me that's infeasible
but all i see is you playing guitar and laughing as you sing this song
and i'm sitting listening there beside you just right there
where i
and then i think how much i miss you
but i know i will soon see you
and i think i'll go to bed with this song in my head and your picture in
my mind
where i will smile
and groove
and sing along
in my dreams.
