Bed Time

Bedtime

 

Do you ever lie there at night,

With memories running through your mind

of times gone by, to come, to never be?

I heard meditation lets you slow these down,

See all of them at once or not at all,

To just be there - thoughts floating through your mind

like tiny boats sailing the wind in a breeze,

Peacefully gliding through your consciousness

Like a kite rippl...

I hope the "sleep" function is working

You have fallen asleep with the radio on.

 

Electromagnetic waves push inanities

into air that should at this time be only for breathing.

 

I lie and wait for the dull click

that will bring silence billowing down

onto your slumber and my wakefulness

 

knowing that the same sound, too soon

will tear me from the sleep

I should have accepted I needed

much earlier.

Above The Light Of The Morning Star

Above The Light Of The Morning Star

 

Pity the dark eyed man who chases sleep.

Yet, pity more, the man who finds that realm

and dances with his friends, long gone,

then wakes to find such loneliness in his heart.

 

A father’s hand laid gently on his shoulder

or a mothers kiss to say farewell on leaving.

These are the magic lanterns

of the ghosts that are their ghosts.

I Am Tired

I am tired.

Tired of the moment my body urges me to go to bed.

I am tired.

Tired of lying here waiting for sleep to take over.

I am tired.

Tired of waiting and waiting and waiting...

I am tired.

Tired of suddenly waking up in the middle of the night and being unable to fall back asleep.

I am tired.

Tired of waking up in the morning and not being well rested.

I am so t...

Succubus

waking

in their bed

beneath the slates  

waking

as in a dream

slowly aware

waking

completely

waking

in the window airs

waking

in the hush

of the night

palely lit by her lucent light

the night

calls to him

and he walks out

the night

absorbs him

summer dew wet on his feet

her cool breath on his naked flesh

the quiet mysterious night

Let The Night Fall

Let The Night Fall

 

Let the night fall and cover us

with heavy molasses sleep

that makes our bodies

sink into soft linen sheets.

 

Clouds of pillows

swirling round

our dream filled heads.

 

Let the night fall and still

the howling creatures

clawing at the doors

of our subconscious..

 

Folds of duvet

cushioning

the ravages of life.

 

Let ...

Can't sleep

Fighting this beast of sad mediocrity 

Gouging its eyes out to kill its soul 

Body racked with tempestuous anxiety 

Cannot sleep 

Pain of living 

Nothing but void  

A vacuum where nothing grows 

An empty space full of ideas going nowhere.

Haunting Lulaby.

There's a ghost in my room
That sings me to sleep
Whispering in my ear
A sweet symphony

With a simple melody
That has a heart mending remedy
But the words that it sings
I can't remember for the life of me

The voice is familiar
But can't put it to a face
I remember something similar
When my mind was in a better state

All I can hope
Is that it never leaves
Because if it were to d...
