Sleepless

I don’t much sleep anymore.

Maybe it’s the heat.

Maybe it’s the wild thoughts

running through my head.

Maybe it’s because I dream,

a little too much about her,

and in my dreaming I worry

that I may fall deeper into love.

She is oblivious.

I am occupied, taken.

She summed it up, once,

as beautifully as anyone could ever

sum up the situation,

“you can’t be compatible

with someone who’s married.”
