sleep /

a blanket of down covering the weary limbs
eyelids closing in welcome of rest
the disconnected scattered wires of the mind
put at ease in the plush of the pillow
muscles sore and feet aching
head too tired from holding itself high
relaxed in a place that welcomes full surrender
where no one can pry with their eyes
fragile body accepting the sweet caress
of silk sheets and thick knit blankets
no eyes watching
in the perfect peace
shielded by the darkness
the comfort of sleep
