Notes From an Insomniac

This is an integration of the common psalm about time and the iOs notes from my iPhone( in italics). The time stamp matches up to the following note. A little bit of found poetry, if you will.

A time (7:29am Feb.1) to love

I wonder if I love him more than he does me. I wonder if it matters.

Am I settling or just accepting 

that everyone does not love the same way?

I wish I wrote to calm the demons in my head,

it seems to only stir them up

Waves fold thunder on the sand.

The  Bottom of the sea is cruel” – Hart Crane

A time( 7:29am Feb.1) for peace

and to sleep. But my mind is not ready yet.
