Daily missive breaks into the weekend Sunday the 26th of March.~ Sleep hygiene.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into the weekend Sunday the 26th of March.
Sleep hygiene.

Close your eyes
The full weight of oppression
Is upon you
Pulling itself over
Your nodding head
A hood for the
Kidnapped soul to peep from
Barely recognising the dim light
As a close friend of ignorance.
It is lonely at the extreme
Edge of despair
Trade in kind for sleep
It is an obvious benefactor
Of a pure conscience.
Rarely found
In the guilty existence
We hide from
Even though in truth
We have nothing to disavow .
The torture so unkindly felt
Is carried as the torch
Of a witness.
Bury me with the truth of it
Cover the winding sheet
With dirt
Nothing behoves my longing
Than to lie alone
Until the end of days
When judgement
Is recanted and we become one.
A union of purpose
The wholeness of soul
Redeemed victims of survival
Ensigns of the brave who went before.
Stay your hand
Slay not the messenger
It is not their word holding you here
But desperation
When the effort to escape
Threatens corruption
The resumption of yesterday’s tears
And the fear
That nothing fuels the terror
In the passage of years
Like the cruelty
Of forgetting.
