Daily missive breaks into the weekend Saturday the 14th of March.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into the weekend Saturday the 14th of March.

It is not forgetting
But slippage.
Stress induced errors
That accompany
The weary.
Shadow
The bleary eyed.
And turn simple things
Into nightmares.
Whole sequences
Forgotten,
As lives drift by
In tandem,
With reality, created,
As an illusion of control.
Even as alcohol
Fools the brain,
Depresses inhibitions,
And gives belief
To the indestructible,
Creating senseless daredevils,
Who exceed all common sense,
And competency,
Whilst ham fistedly
Attempting to be
Extraordinary in all
Things,
Tiredness kills.

Simple things forgot,
Can bring the world
Tumbling down
Around our heads.
So lay down my
Sweet child,
Take to your bed,
And sleep.
Let yourself go
Way down deep,
Drift so far,
The weight
You carry dissolves.
Those myriad
Problems
Disappear, resolve.
And on waking,
You will be refreshed,
Ready to begin again,
To make a fresh start,
In good heart.
