Into Sleep

by Caroline Whalley

Into Sleep
I think of this at the end of my day;
I lived, fulfilled my promises and alongside that my dreams.
-       Dreams die prematurely when they are undefended -
I strongly defend my dreams as distillations of my life
Of course I strive working, learning, for the security we all seek,
I know I take as well as give, that my dreams may live
The bedding so cosy, so warm embraces me
Dream death awaits, ready to assassinate 
all Illusion of control dissipates
I dream on……..

Day 30, of ‘one a day’ poems. By the end of April 2021, 30 poems will create a series. Each poem covers a fragment, a snippet taken consecutively throughout a day.
