insomniac dream poem by jon lejeune

Insomniac’s Dream

close your eyes, my darling
and whisper time away
count these mournful sheep
and curse the games they play

steal the twinkle from the stars
from heaven will you shine
stalk the cursed afterglow
and join your soul with mine

sheep enchant the morning star
i loathe these games they play
slumber tells a thousand lies
and exiles the light of day

Lord forsake the sandman
for empty are his eyes
wicked dances on his crown
and hollow is his guise.
