#23 Poem-A-Day Challenge:In Answer To The Question You Do Not Ask

Rest
like love
for me

is illusive

in answer to the question
you never ask

I do not sleep long

I rest very little

like soldiers
back from war

I have seen too much

I remain in battle stance
ready to
flee
fight
never surrendering

in answer to the question you never ask

I remain at war with memories
that have no place to go
outside of my bones

I do not sleep long

I rest very little
