Sleep

Her eyelids heavy with fatigue

She longed for that bliss

To silently slumber until dawns early light

Her mind rambling

Unable to turn down the volume

It spoke in revolving chorus of life’s unending battles

Her thoughts pummeling at her brain

Like prize fighters in a smoky ring

Landing punch after punch to her already battered soul

Living her life in this catch 22

Unable to sleep, per chance to dream

Un dreaming because sleep would not come

How could she escape this turmoil

How could she find her peace

The answer lie in his arms

There in the darkness

Flesh upon flesh

Solitude found her at last

In the stillness she heard his heart beat

In the silence she heard her own

And soon they both melded into one steady rhythm

Black night enveloped her

Sweet silence kissed her brow

And in that moment, she embraced slumber and found peace at last
