Haiku Wednesday: Pillow Talk

with 2 comments

Silent hush fall deaf,
Still pillow confide with trust,
Awake after dawn.

The drugs (hush) don’t work, they make me worse – o ye faithless one — who hit the snooze button 3 times today in the morning.

Alright, I’m still a non-believer of the secret sect of pillow-hush-alarm.

Maybe the older secret sect of pillow-talk-alarm works better, then again the idea is to get awake on time not to get asleep promptly.

I Have No Castle; I Make Unmovable Mind My Castle

leave a comment »

I have no sword; I make the sleep of the mind my sword.*

I can’t sleep. Does that makes me a pacifist or my mental sword still sheathed?

Enclosed, my mind pregnant with cold metallurgy of profanity — spitting hatred as opposed to battering vengeance.

The sea breeze didn’t offer the usual zen-like serenity, in this balmy night.

I spat tragedy. I cried apathy.

I can’t sleep.

Thus I sheath my “sword” and spill the fluid of “innocence”. Till I lay asleep in the arm of ethereal “succubus”.
