Dreaming awake

Moving in circles forward

draws the line with the mind where to move

drifting invisible clouds lifting

the soul that sinks softly into self.

So tired eyes feel heavy,

weary body like lead, weight staggering,

as the hours pass and time moves as it does

so much to do

so much.

Watch this,

watch out for that,

warden of the gift of heart

can’t let the badness seep in

take over

push out the darkness

and breathe deep.

So many moments left

but the mind slowly closes

hard wood doors closing

as the lock moves into place

and the night seeps below the crease,

sensibilities creep in like a fog on the bay

and the damp chill fills the air,

clean sheets and cotton wait calling softly

to come see about me,

but just one more thing

then this and that

and at some point it all lays by the side

importance reigns supreme,

time to sleep

to let go and let be

and a night perhaps to drift

into the bliss of star filled nights and dreams,

seems just so very long ago

although only days,

miles to go before I sleep

these things I keep

that sustain.

Eyes read and re-read,

creating a semblance of order

as the dominoes fall one after another,

stacked up I am the last standing,

knowing it is time

to close down

and drift into another place.
