no sleep without love napowrimo #19



no sleep without love

we carry personal ads
around our necks—
don’t feed me, spare a
penny, help needed—
the burden of solitude,
prayers of the world.

there’s no rest without
dreams of the ecstasy
that we reach out for
when we’re desperate
enough; never realize
that sometimes we just
need to let out bones
rattle in happiness, tremble
in that freedom. we’ve been
tasting ashes for too long.

  1. Love this! The image of personal ads around the neck and is it "let OUR bones rattle"?
