Raven Syke

An Afternoon Nap - Poem by Raven Syke

Summers sun dyes my skin,
Burning rust and warm hair
It lingers like a hot shadow
And refuses not to shine

Clouds of shade bring promises
A slow and persistent stalk
Worries float from me
On the breeze of summers air

Heavy eyelids already dreaming
Of memories too hard to hold
In the palm of one's mind
What's real and what is reality
