Taking Away Slumber’s Peace

 

Fragrant as a rosey petal
Pungent as the thrashing sea
Softly smooth as moon’s white light
Falls upon you as you sleep.
 
Constant as the earth is ground
Or Changeling as if chrysalis sheathed
Leaving soon or leaving later
Takes away my slumber’s peace.
 
Noticing your mind has wandered
Your heart, a lure, drifts through the deep
While losing mine amidst the waters
Clouded in your shrouds of ink.
 
Fragrant as a rosey petal
Pungent as the thrashing sea
I lie on shore by thorny wild rose
And watch the ocean
Stay, then leave.
