Edge of Night

Edge of Night

written by: Kelli J Gavin



Just when I think sleep will be obtained
When the edge of night seems to be within my grasp
There you are so close, yet so far
Almost within reach but each time I extend my hand
You seem to move just a bit further away
Realizing this isn’t any different than in real life
I stop reaching for you, wanting you, trying to pull you near
Every time you have been present and right in front of me
You’ve slipped through my grasp
Always knowing I wanted to possess you
I feel you took joy in the chase as much as in the act of fleeing
Not only did you not want to be possessed
You never desired to be loved wholly and truly
I’ve given up the pursuit during the sunlit hours
And I no longer wish for you on the edge of night
