week 647 ~ not sure I can burrow any deeper

with 3 comments

not sure I can burrow any deeper
or keep my impulse to wildness locked in
break through the dirt honeysuckle creeper
not sure I can burrow any deeper
nights are still cold spring’s a heavy sleeper
close your eyes roll over wait to begin
not sure I can burrow any deeper
or keep my impulse to wildness locked in

week 609 ~ they can’t breathe they march

with 2 comments

they can’t breathe they march
I can’t sleep I think
anger seethes backs arch
they can’t breathe they march
days move past dreams parched
drop like stones and sink
they can’t breathe they march
I can’t sleep I think

week 474 ~ the most important thing is peace

with one comment

the most important thing is peace
of mind the kind that leads to sleep
at night where promises will keep
and you can let yourself release
control convince your brain to cease
obsessing trust in the moment
without asking where the dream went
knowing life’s still as it should be
where you left it close your eyes see
you’ve just paused waiting for intent

week 468 ~ I wish I truly felt that way

with 2 comments

I wish I truly felt that way
it would be so much easier
to sleep at night to dream infer
peace from silence ignore decay
be hopeful keep the dark at bay
hold onto evening visualize
what never despite many tries
becomes in the end actual
though nothing’s inevitable
there’s sorrow when I close my eyes

week 464 ~ as if the Mona Lisa came alive

with 2 comments

as if the Mona Lisa came alive
and politely asked for a martini
straight up explaining breathlessly no jive
it’s hard outrunning the paparazzi
extra olives and light on the vermouth
she settles in and tells tall tales about
da Vinci and the joys of misspent youth
you better pay attention or she’ll pout
but as you start to ask a question she
looks up perturbed and says it’s time to go
she still has an important date to keep
and you’re left wondering what that could be
poised on the edge of a dream who can know
what goes on beyond the borders of sleep

week 448 ~ when I was sleeping

with 2 comments

when I was sleeping
someone changed the world
there’s no safekeeping
when I was sleeping
chaos came leaping
more blatant lies hurled
when I was sleeping
someone changed the world

week 317 ~ just one more minute

with 2 comments

me.317.jpgjust one more minute
with my eyes closed please
hard to jump in it

this waking up bit
perhaps I could tease
just one more minute

of sleep maybe fit
a bad dream’s release
hard to jump in it

today needs a hit
of energy squeeze
just one more minute

to wake up admit
-ing light by degrees
hard to jump in it

stretch time to permit
somnambulant ease
just one more minute
hard to jump in it

week 312 ~ a trinity of kisses

with 4 comments

me.312a trinity of kisses
on your hand on my shoulder
a drowsy smile dismisses
a trinity of kisses
this sleepy brush with bliss is
an ember that will smolder
a trinity of kisses
on your hand on my shoulder

week 191 ~ ribbon of techno clefts the night

with 4 comments

ribbon of techno clefts the night
crushing sleep where will I find my
wits hiding when the morning sky
rides the arching highway of light
down from the impatient sun might
I recoup sanity in time
to devise a plan then when I’m
perhaps a tad less exhausted
my future not this star-crossed bed
cowering in a fortress of rhyme

week 72 ~ I am so tired time crawls by

with 14 comments

I am so tired time crawls by
taking every ounce of my strength
with it I am tied to the length-
ening shadows by a small sigh
that drools from the corner of my
mouth weariness overcomes all
but obligation worries call
my name so close to sleep nothing
should be able to stop it bring
down night’s curtain please let me fall
