From the Pocket of a Dream

*Endless Sleep*

a diamond
like a most precious pearl
my love is sleeping
inside my heart
in the bed
of gold
on the soft
pillow of desires
As an unborn child
innocent and pure it hopes
for a beam of the very first dawn
to come and wake it up
with the gift of
real life
of the truth that
it will never fly outside
this depth of
keep on
sleeping my precious love
Here within the warmth 
in the safety
It is better
like this
should not feel
the taste of a harsh reality
nor the injustices of life
Sleep on my love
The knowledge
is too painful
Your sleep
be endless
your dream forever

    it would be such a beautiful wish… but love is a wild animal, cage it and it will lose its magic and beauty…
