slumber

If I Am to Lose These Eyes

If  I am to lose these eyes

Strip me then now of these lies

 

Take me to this darkness wonder

In harmony of the black of slumber

Forever to stay shut, anchored in a sea under

and yet though, I do not believe in such thunder

 

You can take me away from one thing

But I will find a way to still chirp and sing

You can take my legs and swallow love's promised ring

But I'll still find a way to flap a broken wing

 


And if I am to die..?

I can walk away, with open eyes.

day off

 

.........

 

a rumpelstiltskin-esque slumber,

 

  unbridled

refreshment

              awakens me,

 

a barefoot stance, 

      stretching dance,

              bounce

                  in

               step,

 

to the kitchen 

 

checking mail,

    the percolator accompanies

       a

         wagging

                     tail,

 

interrupts,

 

   a yawning

          pup,

 

life is good.
