    Can you give a minute?
    Do you think you can?
    Oh, to relish in the sound of the ceiling fan
    in very early mornings!

    It's a subtle buzzing
    mixed with a chiming from the pully-switches.
    (the strings?)
    The pully-switches.

    A faint 'zzzz ca tik'
    (in otherwise silence) from the fan and it's
    "Sing me to sleep" all over again.

    So I fell asleep to the whirring
    and I think I dreamt of you

    And it's late; still far too black for comfort
    but I've learned to take comfort in the darkest of things
    a hint of color hasn't even
    the night seems to never have met the sun
    to shake the world awake

    It's only reasonable that I break beneath the heaviness of the air
    And yet it's bliss.

    But drifting fast, I can't preserve it
    I'm full of guarded and swallowed doubt

    Oh, what I would give!
    to just hide beneath the covers
    and simply never think to come out.

    Its amazing how we notice things like the rhythym of ceiling fans when we are so depressed that our minds cannot focus on anything else...strange too how we find comfort in those rhythyms.

    Life is full of them.

    I like this one.
