For the sleepless

"For the sleepless" poetry by Roshan James, Wellesley, Ontario, Canada


The elusive lover of night

And day’s cheating ways

Gates the passage

Of eager wanderers

To dream-mapped cities

While everyone else



At the gates

Of dream-mapped cities

Wondering idle

At the passing of nights

Cheating only themselves

With their effusive love of day


  1. Adrift, these moments,
    So quickly they pass us by,
    I remember all
