Sing me to sleep,
Lull me into a dream,
So I can be at rest
At last.

A melody so soothing,
A harmony so comforting,
Tone so gentle,
Relaxing my ever anxious mind,
Bringing me to an eased state of mind.

So in one night, not even *****, I
exposed my cretinous ghosts to
someone who heard the words
and nodded. "I feel that."

What's it like to know, and
not even know why,
someone's eyes may well
convey the truth?

So in one night, not even *****, I
exposed my cretinous ghosts to
someone who heard the words
and nodded. "I feel that."

Here I thought it was wrong
that something's wrong with me --
but I function, if improperly
to your specifications.

Here I meet another functional
dysfunction holder,
boldly, in a micro moment,
exposing all of his target tattoos

with an eager, upward tug of the sleeve.

Here I thought I was wrong,
but I'd been misled,
along a familiar path
toward the ravine.
Lot Mar 8
I dream in morphine,
scream for the guillotine,
as the unforeseen seems too obscene.

I dream extreme,
fire in my bloodstream,
too headstrong to belong.

I dream for sunbeams,
to quiet the melancholic theme,
punishment it seems.

I dream for moonbeams,
a healing grace upon my face,
a mother’s gentle embrace.

I dream for peace,
a place among the human race,
without my diseaseful anguish.

I dream to be seen,
for who I am and not my defeat,
a need to please but feel at ease.

Rubayiat Al Thurab (Verses of the Dust) – 40

BismillahIr RahmanIr Raheem

I am willingly the faqeer. (devout wanderer)

Who eagerly drank the Eternal Drink’

Through your noble hand, Oh my beloved!

Nor, there are any shelter, nor there is bond.

In Your Eternal Love, I wander wherever I naturally want,

And gently set my poised head upon the sacred earth,

And at ease myself, under the opened vast sky!

Allah Khair….. Khairul Rabul Alameen Yah Arrahmanur Yah Raheem

Rubayiat Al Thurab (Verses of the Dust)
Baylee Kaye Jan 17
each night I can’t help but think about you,
imagining you’re next to me lulls me right to sleep.
I pray for the warmth that I can only conjure up in my mind.
the darkness lasts too long without you,
and suddenly I’m four years old again,
with creatures lurking in the shadows and monsters under my bed.
then I’m yearning for your touch to bring me calm,
settle me down and ease my anxious heart.
I can’t help but want you next to me,
I have space next to me for you to lay your head.
so, until the day comes that you’re here,
I will silently wish for you all over again.
d.c.

When was the last time

You felt completely at ease?

For me

Five months.

My constant stress is

unsurmounted .

My desires are unattainable.

Everything is just

Out of reach.

I am over...

A melody
Passes through my soul
With  much ease and calmness,
Across all the pieces
That make me whole.

Puts together
The distant parts
Of my heart and mind,
That time
Managed to pull apart,
But finding myself,
Redirected to unite again.

This melody
Is greatly appreciated,
As it represents
What we are
And what we could be.
My mind
Opens.
My heart
Remembers.
All of those
Magnificent memories
Flash through my mind
At the instant
When that melody
Passes Through
my heart.

When the day's are rough.
She pour down
her thoughts
on the paper,
to ease her
heart.

staggering memory

catch a thought to avoid the misery

asmr videos to sleep in tranquility

losing my sense of self

(not all that bad)

inflicted abilities

to see beyond the people that leave

accepting for the ease

aware of the problems and successes that I must seize
O Imagination!
Fond of mysterious ways
In my heart ensconced
You opt to stay ensnared
By the web of complexities
You have devised,
I am not surprised.
Now, you cannot be free,
You cannot soar high,
And that will make me weak.
Complications unnerve my mind,
Thinking becomes difficult,
Sanity shivers
And this much I cannot risk.
Brighten your colours
And stay spread far and wide;
My heart cannot be your refuge.
Let not my mind play with you.
