into sleep


a lamp
by the bed
way beyond midnight

silence filled
with the sounds
rattling inside
a would-be
not-quite
sleeper

the stillness
is a transportation
to another plane

the sense
of middle night
a touch
surreal

shadows reach across
the ceiling
in search of corners
seeking out a place
of full retreat

and the darkness
when it comes
will be a blessing
a boon

for weariness
at an hour like this
comes to the fore

so
just a last line now
or two
to half complete
a semi-thought

before the journey
into sleep
resumes
