Am Gone Home To Sleep - Poem by alexander opicho

I am gone home to sleep
don't follow me down with your issues
i have no where else i can go for fortress
other than the oblivion to the world
which my dear sleep always crowns me,

my heart has no other fountain of self renew
other than my cost free sleep,
which your usurer's knack has not yet priced,
leave me alone to sleep
for in my death like sleep
i test freedom of the enslaved
