  1. Sleep past the dawn
    And on
    No more nightmares
    of the living tormented day and mind,
    or demons scourging my besieged sight
    Let rest the worries of this life
    whether it is day or night,
    let there be nothing left to do or see
    And do away with all that plagues me
    Sleep on and on
    So that nothing may be wrong
    This journey has taken its toll for so long
    Let it be over with and gone
    Open for me this blissful door
    I do not wish to see anymore
    My battered soul is not up to the chore;
    Weak, beleaguered, weary,
    All strength gone and leery
    I crave remembrance of sweet bliss
    It’s been an age since I’ve encountered this
    And all I feel is bitterness
    Let me go into that nether realm
    Where nothing matters
    Where All is well

    As always, a perfect poetic expression of your dispair. And, as always, I so wish for some measure of peace for you. Some dreamless sleep, some rest and respite.

    love always,

    :hug: That's fab. I love how effortless your writing seems, not that I'm saying that it takes no effort, but that the words seem to flow out of yourself, such talent. I, too wish for some peace for you, but not 'that nether realm'. :sad:

    I wish I could help. I can only send you peaceful thoughts and tell you that I would be glad to listen if that would help.
