as i lay me down, awake

i beg the depths of sleep too take

my mind away from all this stress

and warm my heart with tenderness

i listen to this jagged breathing

not asleep, it sounds like seething

and though it twists and tears my heart

pray bridge this gap, words and worlds apart

it's astounding the space that exists in one bed

once the seeds of doubt take root in one's head

◄ instead

hush ►
