Nights are awakening
into the deep sleep.

Terrains keep changing
we need little more time
of the slumber
for the enlightenment
James Sep 24
Ive been gone.
A long awaited freedom.
Gone for so long.
Ive been gone.
For too long,
Ive been gone.

In my memories,
A past lingers in a haze.
The spaces so divided,
A connection seemingly quixotic.

Its cloudy.
Its dark.
A moment in space.

It feels like an eternity.
Floating in a universe with possible impossibilities.
Yet I remain aimlessly afloat,
enshrouded in nothing.

No drift
No serendipity
No clemency
To pull me from this cold idle.

And when I see a comet hurdling by,
I can only wish to share its great journey.
Ren Sturgis Sep 22
Craving your skin on mine,
missing every whimper and whine.
Foreheads together,
breaths mingling,
teeth pulling lips,
hands gripping hips,
hold gets tighter.
Succumb to me.
Come for me.đź’ś
A soft sigh in the night.
Eyes drift closed.
Body needs rest.
Deep, peaceful slumber.
Norman Crane Sep 10
how tranquil it would be
to sleep as deeply
as an anchor
at the bottom of the sea
the soft falling rain
didst lull sleepers to slumber
with their restful drops
LRF May 24
If you drink
at the
the mouth of that river
its gaping jaw
and jagged teeth,
for its churning mix of salt and fresh water
cannot slake your thirst,
cannot sustain you.

Once you dip your head
in that wet maw
and close your eyes to its wily currents,
it will seize
the moment of surrender
and trusting immersion
and swallow you
until it rapes all breath
from your slackened body
and leaves you to sleep -
a weightless
slumber -
amongst the somber waving weeds.
May 2020
peace exists only until
you destroy its walls,
your words bled its ears,
you suffocate it with love,
you dim the light of hope,
you wreak havoc in its home,
and left like a prideful coward,
just when the beast in slumber awakens.

Life is fleeting
But my heart is still beating
So keep it still
But only thy will
For my desire is to glorify
And my want is to praise you till by and by
But while on this earth
I ask not for mirth
Only rebirth
And a chance to tell another
About about my heavenly father
But the day is done
And I petition, by your son,
For you to bless my rest
And may my slumber be your behest
In your son’s precious name
Isabella Mar 22
Goodnight Sun, you left so soon.
Goodnight Stars, and Goodnight Moon.
I close my eyes and drift away,
Into slumber's sweet embrace.
