Nessun Dorma - rants and rambles
Nessun Dorma
Oh sleep, i cannot
no one sleeps tonight, and there is no peace
even with the sweetest tones enfolding,
even with weaving patterned thoughts
even with the deepest dark enshrouding
or with a silence i might enforce from every allthing
there is no rest
for as i toss, my heart stirs with thoughts of morning come
oh sleep, I cannot.

when i think of morning time, your face across from mine
you are lit with inner fire and I burn with desire
this is what I see this night

do what you will, your hand is there, and i can touch it as i like.
see what you want, i won't know, for all my mind fills with your light.
frighten as you might, it won't matter, for all of me, quakes, for all of you.
say you don't want me, and i will pull you to me
speak any words you will, and my lips will silence them

oh most beloved, this madness is you
there is no sleep waiting for me
there is no peace tonight
and when tomorrow comes, i won't use my hand
to pick up tea, to set the spoon, to smooth the cloth
i will set my hand down upon on yours, instead,
and I won't let you pull away

Oh sleep, I cannot
no one sleeps tonight
not with my soul so wound
in covers bound by tossed
legs en-wrapped like ties
my longing keeps the world awake

no one sleeps tonight
no one sleeps tonight

Usually when people portray insomnia, you get a picture of the person tossing and turning all alone. I like that there is someone else there, and that desire is a distraction. At least that's how I see it. :)

Hi, thank you for the comment. I get few comments, so they are all precious to me. I love when people tell me how they see it.

I won't tell you if you are right or wrong, because how you see it is best.

Thank you, let me know if you have any other thoughts on this or others. no pressure. : )
