Ode to Sleep

You loyally await me every night and I long for your comfort.

Your calling is like sweet cream.

Gentle, soothing.

Soft blankets, warm toes, my weight sinking into the bed.

I breathe in. I breathe out.


Dreams may come. Dreams will be forgotten.

But you remain.

Wrapping me in relaxation.


*If there are rules to poetry, I don’t know them. My sleep deprivation has truly hit a new level when I find myself writing poetry.
