Take me, sleep,
free me from the cage of a chattering mind,
show me the bliss that lies beyond
sweet surrender as I fall into your arms.
Let me not wrestle with familiar demons
but taste the succour of your bosom
far from this deceitful clock face
whose hands point to my failure to find you
and whose tick sings the song of wasted tomorrows.
Absorb me,
strike down the barriers that separate us,
let nothing stay your hand,
take me to your nameless land,
your formless dance,
your colorless rainbow––
