Sleep


Sleep.
Inescapable peace,
elusive rest.
Warm-blooded, captivated,
wildly chasing down
delightful dreams.
Essential euphoria-
confused, contrived, conduced,
construed, construction of calm,
manufactured, manipulated magic
pill might
make day dreams not
night come.
Eyes open under lids,
waiting, hoping,
forgets to breathe, body forgets to be..
being what it was
when it first came
to me.
Sleep flees.

Childhood flees.

Dreams flee.

You chase.
