ironic is the dream

For weekend wordsmith no. 85: Sleepless

ironic is the dream
whose theme is insomnia
and bizarre still to wake
not having slept a wink.

oh struggle, oh trouble,
heartache and nostalgia.

what worry, what vigil,
wrestle, tussle and think.

as you share your Self

as you share your Self
do take care how thin
each slice
as well remember
to retain
more than a sliver
for you
as prize.

in measured measures

this vile recital
teeming with odium
in measures unseen of late
with malice and hubris
shame and disdain
enters its final
dark scene.

at long last
an end.

as the curtain falls
it is dawn.

color returns
in measured measures
as well hope
and great expectations.

now each tomorrow
and every each to follow
are replete with promise
and boundless possibilities.

in measured measures
