The Option In The Middle Of A Very Sound Sleep


the poem is a dream
it arrives in the middle of my sound sleep
it wants to wake me up
it is severely disturbed
it wants to be written

i am so tired
and i ask it
why it does have to be written?

i do not have the answer
to fabricate its purpose
i know it has
so many reasons

but i respect it somehow
and i leave it
undeciphered

at the last hour of my
sleep


it leaves me perturbed somehow
but when i wake up and gets myself busy with the ordinary days of my life
it becomes
another item forgotten

perhaps its reason is that
it is in the middle of a very sound sleep
and so it has all the
option to tell the truth

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
