(I wrote this in 2007. I edited it this year and feel this is the final cut. I share freely!)


I watch you sleep in my dreams

before you fade

deeper away

to the clock on the wall

I awake

see you ready for the day

battle with wanting more rest

make ends meet

your thoughts not your own

time needs no sleep

you sell yours to pay the rent

to eat

i feel you feed on the go

want peace but can’t know

i watch you sleep in my dreams

peace overwhelms me

i awake letting go.
