slumber

as i wrestle
in my dreams
shake with rage
wake in despair
do the images
fade away slowly
or shine vividly
for me to forget
remembering fear

does twilight
cover my face
as moonbeams
freeze in my
windowsill silently
disappearing as
sunrise welcomes
echoing days
of endless hours
to be awake

as dusk
takes cover
of land before
my own eyes
take their last
glance of stars
shining their end
a subtle demise
for a simple sign
to set in motion
a cycle to repeat
until you shine
one last time
