Blanket Of Fire

I am crawling into sleep
Beneath my blanket of fire
For this moment I
Need shelter from the cold

And within this cocoon of
Slumber I am delivered
From the happenings of
The day to bask in the glory

Of the night and within this
Blanket of unconscious desire
I am one with the night and
Recharge my very being

To survive the comings of the
Next day, and this is what we do
We recharge to see the things that
The day before cannot prepare

Us for and when we find it
We go deep into these thoughts
And when we understand them then
We can become them but

If we misunderstand them
Then we may never truly
Understand why we crawl
Beneath this sacred blanket
And feel this serenity.
