This was written on one of those night's where sleep just was not agreeing with me.

Every moon i desperately chase you, 
through the mire of my thoughts you elude me. 
I cannot deem the past be untrue, 
my skeletons sharing my evening tea. 

I long for your company my slumber dark lady 
whistfully waiting for this world to escape together 
defying my captors to be with you freely 
alas the irony - a truth stuck forever. 

My linens are turned - my mattress is set 
I defy all your suitors and pray myself you will choose 
to be your companion, not merely a guest 
slumber dark lady, too precious to lose 

I know not slumber dark lady when i will see you again, 
but i yearn for the company of my truely scarce friend. 


Pro-poemer, not really;
