Asleep

Written by Jacob Ibrag

We watched others

keep their flames awake

while losing track of our own

light as it slowly faded away. ‘This

was supposed to be easy,’ you sighed

as I pretended to be asleep. They

used to call us perfect, till

we let us depreciate.

  3. You have a way with words, I know that, everybody knows that. I’m cheering towards reading something more from you. Something that blows us away!

  5. Nicely done. You’ve captured the sense of loss that creeps up undetected.
