Sirens and Silence

There were sirens
Then silence

You craved silence
From sirens
That disturbed
your morbid dreams
of not having enough
and not being enough.

You fought nightmares
Of watching your hand wrinkle
From holding elusive dreams
That fall from your hand like water

You struggle to stay awake
So you can move your calloused feet
From constantly hanging on clouds
To stepping on ground

While I craved
To be awakened by sirens
From these silent dreams
Of having you beside
Through much
And not having enough

I fought nightmares
Of watching you
Watch your hand wrinkle
Alone

I struggle to stay awake
So I can watch you
Walk into the sunrise of your dreams
While I let mine go back to sleep


You dread
Sirens
And I,

silence
