Twisted words, simple meanings overlap.
As tiredness laps up dreams.
Lugubrious, weighing down, inexplicable
Red rimmed, hot, shut up against all tangible reason.
Of you, that is not to be.
Blankets drawn to the chin-
Blanketing out sound, sight and smell.
Except those that breed under the
Twisted memories,simple meanings,
As slumber inches its way in, lapping
everything in its wake.
Awake? Not yet.
Asleep? Not yet.
