The Light of Sleep

 

The Light of Sleep

 

I write despite the time of night,

And fight the light of sleep.

I write, and might, in dream tonight,

Find the flight to leap

A lap around the kite-filled sky

Phantasmic, black and deep,

Wherein the knightly stories hide

Awake within their keep.

But, by and by, by light of night

I dig them from the deep,

To save them for Tomorrow’s sight,

By fighting the light of sleep.

-M.M.
