Can't Sleep

Tags: love, tex, drifter, poem, long,
Never seem to have time for what's really important...

So cold and lonely, 
My world was sleeping. 
A sweet but troubled 
Voice called out to me…

She said…

“Baby, I can’t sleep. 
My past, it haunts me. 
Please, will you come see 
Why it torments me? 
And, Baby don’t let 
Shadows consume me.
Oh, Baby don’t let 
Lost hope define me.
Baby, don’t let these 
Demons possess me!”

So sad and weary, 
Her soul, it touched me. 
Something about her 
Beauty compelled me…

I said…

“Baby it’s okay, 
Let’s start a new day. 
Give the past away, 
Back to yesterday.
And, Baby you’ll see 
Dark shadows recede, 
Oh, Baby you’ll see 
Hope sprout new leaves. 
Baby, believe me, 
Your heart sets you free.”

So warm and lovely, 
Sweet soul still fragile, 
Through pain she slowly 
Let old walls crumble…

She said…

“Baby it’s so hard 
To face this heartache 
Oh please just tell me 
Which choice do I make? 
And, Baby tell me,
Tell me you feel me. 
Oh, Baby tell me, 
Tell me you need me. 
Baby, please tell me,
Tell me you love me!”

So full and happy, 
Her love embraced me. 
This beautiful soul 
Mystically held me…

I said…

“Baby, please trust me, 
Your path, it must be 
Something you feel free 
To choose without me.
And, Baby I feel, 
I feel you with me. 
Oh, Baby I need,
I need you clearly. 
Baby, please hear me,
I love you dearly!”

So bright and lively, 
My world was shining. 
This perfect woman 
Imperfect timing…

She said…

“Baby, I know how 
Far you’ve taken me. 
No time for me now 
You’ve forsaken me. 
And, Baby why won’t 
You stay here with me? 
Oh, Baby why can’t 
You come back to me? 
Baby, tell me why 
You’ve no time for me!”

So bent and twisted, 
My world is crumbling. 
Not how I wished it, 
But karma’s humbling…

I said…

“Baby, I can’t sleep, 
Since your words found me. 
No one to save me, 
This life, it drowns me.
And , Baby I can’t 
Stay longer with you.
Oh, Baby I won’t 
Be back here real soon. 
Baby, I wish I 
Had more time for you.”

So dead and lonely, 
My world is empty. 
Missing the only 
Woman who tempts me…

Baby, if you can hear me...

Please, Baby, don’t let 
Shadows consume you... 
Oh, Baby don’t let
Lost hope define you… 
Baby, don’t let your 
Demons possess you!!

Baby, please…

If you still care for me, 
Say a prayer for me.
New shadows are falling, 
Falling cold around me. 
Old demons are coming, 
Yeah, they’re coming for me…
