mlm’s menagerie #19 while you were sleeping: watching the Dream you are Dreaming

watching the dream you are dreaming

I watch you, as you lay sleeping

wondering of what you are dreaming

0n cliff, ocean far below, intent on leaping

why is a date with the devil worth keeping

I find you bloody,  barely breathing

you are convinced that life needs leaving

my love could not stand such a cleaving

so resigned to death, our hearts stop beating

would only that such a dream be fleeting

but each night, it sends its ominous greeting

so through your breath, death comes creeping

      By the rhyming bug I’ve been bitten. So that’s the way my verse has been written. Thank you for saying “wow.” For now I can take a bow.

    You explore the mystery and frustration of suicide very starkly phylor. I think you have conveyed it so very well.
