Awake alone...

As I watch
Your breath rise and fall

I despair
At the futility, et al

Of trying
Rhyming lines to write

When all I want
Is to sleep, tonight!

You know, after thinking about this for 2 days I realised "Et al" does not work for me. Too corporate-legalise like.

pRicky: Yes.. thats why life is so interesting you know... Thanks for dropping by too.. will make my visits more often too..!

Epiphany: Before: Poetic fantasy .. After: Closer to reality! :-)

manuscrypts: Sing ... I'm all ready to sleep..

austere: How about 'of it all' ... et al I must concede that 'et al' was a rhyming patch

austere said...

Right on about the rhyme part. "et al" does have an encompassing sense that "of it all" doesn't quite do justice to. The jury's out.
