Insomnia short poem

Photo by Anton Gorobets

I walk down the bridge
Whispering to my restless mind
About your last night’s talk
And those unfeeling hands of innocence

The night eglantine smiles
In its usual way
At my timid inexpressive desire
And the love filled eyes of dumb silence

I walk on and turn right
At the square where opinions meet
Away from your sight
into my self in seclusion

I try in vain
to close the doors
On the sleepless roads
Of this pale moonlit night
But these paths try
beckoning me every time back to your doorstep
