Pair me not

Pair me not

The whirring sound of the AC

Artificial breeze in my hair

Sleep, a glimpse of eternity

Twirling, my mind it does ensnare

 ♦

In my dreams tomorrow I see

Hopes with many a friend I share

The soothing of maternity

Rids of all evils and despair

 ♦

The dreams I dream are meant to be

Yet my soul will never walk there

Arms reach out for felicity

Mind abhorring the mere word pair

 ♦

All words pile up but break in me

Desolate my arms remain bare

Strong she breaks away in fury

My sister, my twin, untamed mare

 ♦

Pair me not, she screams so shrilly

Choose me not a life so unfair

Seek not promises so empty

All we need is each other’s care

Link to my reading of the poetry

Waking up

Waking up

 

A foot, a leg, someone walking

A lip, a mouth, someone talking

Fragments to my blurred vision impose

Their bold outlines, my eyes I close

***

A stir, a nose, someone breathing

A whirr, a cough, a chest heaving

Listless I turn and toss so cold

To signs beckoning, tales untold

***

A heave, a draught, someone waking

A scratch, a squeak , fingers raking

 Those fiendish weapons one can wield

Increasing pressure till you yield

***

A tap, a rap, someone drumming

Steady and slow, someone humming

Three devils, through my lids they peep

Goodbye forever sweet, sane sleep
