2020-08-25 – Restless Bed Syndrome

heaven on a pillow-
just as light and fresh
as the thought
sounds?

it’s what i wonder as m’lady’s
crystal globe rests
on her cloud,

though between me, you
and the leerin’
moon,

i let her think i’m
dreaming..

++++

figures she’s more free to
be herself when spared
all my sleepless
reeling

all my flimsy
feelings,

all my shadow puppet shows
cast on the starless
ceiling
.

…all my lackings, when starved of sleep.
