Night Awareness

Sleep is creeping around the corners of my eyelids.
The room is cold.
A shaft of light spies through the curtains,
Why does light do that?
The curtain never wins.
How can sleep festoon about me, when the spirit
Slips through the chink in the fabric
Of time.
I am watching the shape of nothing.
Mesmerised by nothing.
Soon, the shaft will be a beam reaching in,
Dragging me into the day.
Surely, on the other side
There must be a shaft of dark.

Thanks for your kind comments. You have each shed new light onto it too, for which I also thank you. I myself do find the poem soothing but I want to let the poem speak for itself since it seems to have more to say than I realised at the time.

Thank you also to all those who have clicked 'Like' for this poem. Much appreciated.
