Sleeping Single

Sleep teases and taunts me

In a bed set for one.

One life is all we are promised

Yet I search for a partner

To hold me close

To keep the darkness away

To hold the world at bay

From the darkest day

But at the end of the search

darkness sits in wait

A partner does not keep it away.

Darkness is mine

Without owning it

Without walking into it

Without surrounding and accepting it

Only the partner

After partner

After partner

Will be held at bay
