Sleepy Head


Looking into the mirror
To see who I should be
But who's staring back
I decide isn't me

He seems happy
There's a twinkle in his eyes
There's a calmness about him
And I don't know why

There's slight bruising to face and chest
For some reason I ache body and mind
But it's the good kind 
All I need is rest

But sleep wont come
Something wont let me be
There's an after taste
That's causing a stir in me

I can't recollect, the voices are back
Looking at the vanity and the deck is stacked
Everything's layed out for the final act
But staring into the mirror, I see your back

Half hidden, buried beneath the covers
I see your tail hanging from beneath the covers
Yes reality suddenly returns 
And so back to bed I return

My friend, my lover, my succubus
Revealer of the matrix
Decipherer of my numbers
Welcomes me back and helps me with slumber

    We thank you Purposelessness, you are one of a few that read and comment on of our mushy pieces. The readers on DP generally don't like our style of love poetry.

    Started off sad but ended on a happy note, the way all bedtimes should end. I enjoyed this thank you.
