Perchance to Dream

Sleep evades me, sleep pervades
Every thought not spent on you
Sleep eternal, sleep inherent
In my neural web imbued.

Heavy burden, weight immobile
Crush the life from those in view–
Wield the power of the mighty as
Hope of lasting one more
One last second–
Worn and ragged glints renew

Wreck the masthead
Hoist the cargo—life’s a lover
Of the broken, flailing, fickle few
Let me sleep, just one long minute,
sleep away my love anew.
