As I Sleep

as I close my eyes to sleep

I pray my guardian angel keep watch

until tomorrow, or until the Lord takes my soul

 

I pray that I have done good for the day

enough for me to be saved

 

as I close my eyes to sleep

if given another day to live,

may I treasure it and do more kindness than yesterday

 

and if I close my eyes for the final sleep

I hope and pray to leave a legacy

that I may be proud of

As It Would Seem

see me without looking,

hear me without listening,

love me without feeling,

speak without talking….

then let me know what you find

for I have often wondered

what it must be like to be hollow.

 

touch me without sensing,

hold me without feeling,

lie to me as if it’s the truth,

then let me know what it’s like

for I have often wondered

what it must be like to be hollow.

Coffee as it is…

coffee as it is, is like immortality

vagueness of the bitterness and after taste

that caught thy tongue

in a loop of addiction

ever so often you want to stop

but find yourself starting again

 

it’s aroma and darkness of texture

invites your senses to a playful symphony

a kaleidoscopic attraction

that tingles and makes your mouth water

scorches the heart into a halt

yet you come back for more
