When the calm night breathes
I feel so restless,
something is missing
I be very sleepy but sleepless

There is something wrong
hidden in this silence
there is something there
just in slight essence

Ponder through my thoughts
venture through every corner
to get some relief
but nothing I concur

Anxiously I wait
for some suddenness
that makes this asleep night alive
so I can finally have my rest.

Rain sieved through my window screen, leaving clear freckles upon my cheeks.

The stars blanket the sun, but still flashes of white light up my room.

The sky roars and it cries as though it's fed up and the air rushes bitter down my side.

I am
lore of
wine often
lately overdone
as my
cape is
rouge in
a billet
that rosé
blushes masseuse
and this
obvious state
is true
but in
real life
my blues
traveler hues

the golden horizon
reminds me of
the times we stayed awake
till dawn
and talked

you always had a way of cheering me up
SATAN'S GIRL Sep 4

Everything is fine
just close your eyes.
Slowly drift away
don't worry about a thing.
Once you're asleep,
those feelings will melt away
and you will wake up
in a brand new day.

I rushed headlong into the ceiling
cracked face, I could barely stand up
from the opposing force of the
mosquito net

I was a tendril of leaf tunneling
out of my seed cage from deep under
ground, I whispered my nightmares
to the sunlight

I could sleep on a bed of springs
or feathers and yet, I could never
be comfortable, I seek a cocoon
with sleep switch

The rain could be my soothing
melody accompanied by the
harmony of Bollywood but my
brain still travels

Poem ideas could be in memory
and yet, they form as I start dozing
off causing my fingers to itch for a
pen or iPad

I could have swam ten laps and
yet my brain is rowing harder
in its liquid encased darkness,
flickering bulb neurons

I already prolonged sleep,
eyes drooping and I still ignore
it to write and talk and think and
pursue dreams uninterruptedly.

sleep with the door unlocked
hoping that you will come by
crawl next to me in bed
hold me like you never left
it's a false hope
in the morning i know
i'll still wake up alone

I'VE FALLEN IN LOVE WITH FALLING ASLEEP BECAUSE AT LEAST THEN I CAN ESCAPE WHAT HAUNTS ME BUT IN REALITY THERE'S NO RUNNING AWAY NO RUNNING AWAY AND WHEN I WAKE UP I'M FREE FOR JUST A MOMENT BEFORE IT ALL COMES RUSHING BACK AND THE WEIGHT ON MY SHOULDERS FEELS HEAVIER THAN IT DID BEFORE I DRIFTED OFF
