I fall asleep at seven
chest pain aching
oh not my heart but maybe
(another heart I know is damaged)

I fall into sleep like water night
deep into night
deep into water
deep in dreams

I wake at two
I wander
in the dark of the internet
what did people do before
the internet
in the dark
what did women do before
the internet
in the dark

burnt as witches

before I fall
deep in night
I lie hungry
I lie longing

Rumi says longing
is prayer to the Beloved

I long most
when I lie down
before I fall

I long for you
I long for your body
I long for your warmth
I long for your breath

I long
it is so tiring
longing all the time

oh Beloved

I fall deep

When I awake at two
I am hungry for food at five

hungry for you
always
