because sleep didn't seem to be the answer

~Catching up~

for you i will stay awake and ignore
night's call to surrender
fretful it sirens sleep, begs me to my bed til almost
i could succumb, but just
a breath from you
the merest hint that you are or have been
awake and in this world without me
and i shun slumber, shrug off buzz of doze that drones
return to puzzle how i ever can make up
every moment spent unaware and
without you
