Sleep Pensively - Poem by Norman F. Santos

Esoteric eyes
Of withering vines
Stifle to vie
Pardon from lies
That shatters a heart
In a slanderous art
To regress and thwart
These worlds apart.
Fold daintily,
Black orchid of serenity
Relinquish the drudgery
As you sleep pensively.

Arms of towers,
Catch all that saunters;
Vagabonds and chauffeurs
And the volition to smother
That seals the spaces
With fiendish laces
On the jagged creases
Of blighted faces.
Guard like a sentry
And loom over me
Lissome malady,
Come, sleep pensively.

Ebony crust,
Blearing a mirage of lust
From the bosom of the vast
Ocean of the past
Eviscerate the films
Of these synthetic whims
Wear it on the seams
Of your oppressed dreams.
Dream boldly
Of gnawing lilies
And in a faith too scrawny
Graze to sleep pensively.
