Sleepy Thoughts - Poem by Kendzi Samuel

Sleepy thought dance across the sky
Rays from the stars rest on my palm
Sanguine flow along with a voiceless cry
and shivering flames that inspires calm

Lost in a silent flamenco, carried by feather,
Lonesome as a cloud in an eerie desert,
Empty seats, thoughts echo in the theater,
I sit, slit my eyes and await your concert.

And my fingers flip through pages in a leather bound book,
Filled with signs that flash in both daydreams and nightmares,
For hopes and fears, through the crystal orb we look.
The pleaedis and orion, from a moonless sky stares.
