    I reached out for you in the night

    but you weren't there. I rolled over and brushed against your bare skin. You didn't hear me whisper, "I hate that dream."

    The sun shone in her window till she could

    sleep no more. She laid still, her cheek on the pillow where her tears from the night before had dried. She yawned as she rolled and put her feet on the floor. "Today will be a better day", she whispered with a faint smile as she stood and undressed for her shower.

    The feelings don't get any melody of a poem in my mind. The way of life is stopped by a sudden storm, So I keep myself in the house like a prisoner as it norm. The sky of mind is heavy as it cloudy, For want of tears I can't cry loudly. The moon walks with me but don't come in...
