the days of late have been quite enough for my heart, mind and soul to keep up … and so…
drifting off to sleep,
taking an illicit nap in the middle of the day,
when it hit me.
I have always loved the act
of sleeping. It is a thread
that holds my life together, connecting me
It is safety, a place I have run to all my life.
For life is full of danger and pain.
Life is sometimes more than I can bear.
I do not know if there is anything
I enjoy more than sleep.
