Poetry: “On sleep”

Again, musing on the seemingly mundane.

***~***~***~***

On sleep

Sweet reprieve
Perchance to rest
To drift along
On currents deep
Just bob along
Where it might go
Perhaps to catch
A dream or two
Calming breaths
Sink down below
Far into spaces
Naught disturbs
It can betray
Reveal its fangs
By nightmare hooves
You’re trampled down
Or just thrown out
The rest cut short
Insomnia
Is all you get
