Sleep

By
Sleep

Last night- the sky fell on me.
I was obliterated by the darkness.
Felt the suction of the sky suckling my skin.

I felt it.

I heard it.
I bathed in the heat of the night.
Walked with sleep.
Sang with the hush of the wind,

The sky broke my tongue,
So I painted demons on its remains,

And swallowed a nightmare.
I captured dreams,

I held them.

I felt them,
Last night-the sky fell on me,

But I glued it back by morning.
