Random Poem:

She said

"I'm through."
"You're through?"
"I said I'm through, and when I'm
Through I'm through.
I have trains to follow and
Mornings to chase."
"But your mornings are my
Mornings; they are filled with
Our fingers and the sleep of
Our eyes."
"They are my mornings.  My sleep
is my own."
"Your sleep is my sleep;  without
Our sleep who knows
What dreams may come?"
"Let them come.
Bring them in droves.
I need the river beneath my
Feet and trains and my
Mornings.  I stopped dreaming
You a long time ago; you
Must have known."
"I did.  I had hoped it was a
"Not a dream.  And now I'm
Through.  Leave it at that."
