​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


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

 -to be in love…
