O' Sleep

Where
Where are you?

Why do you hide
So well
At night
When weary eyes
Desire most?

I hear your voice
Teasing
Setting a trap
Luring me
Back
To Him
Once again.

The want of my eyes
Is to hide old lies
In slumber
But
You
O Sleep
Hide
So well
And keep
So Close
To Him
Where sin
Hasnt been
And worn eyes
Remember.

I most want to
Forget old goodbyes
Paint rusted ties
And awake
A sunny day
And say
I am rested
I am rested.

But you abide with
Him
He wont forgive
Again
And again
In exchange for you
O Sleep
Without
Peace
And rest
In Him.

So
You win
I pray
Once again
O Sleep
Whether you'll
Tuck me in
So He can
Finally
Win
This fight
In my soul
And I can be
Rested
In Him
Alone
Forever.

Ah-men.

I like this poem because of the message - God takes us as we are and we just need to come to Him. What peace!

I like this poem because of the message and because of the way you use minimal words to convey it, the form of your poem is lovely, the choice of line breaks and repetition and how you write is so well done. I am reading your work and trying to learn as I go. Lesley-Anne
