sleep again

When will you wake up
what will rouse you from your bed
a siren’s song
coffee freshly made
about to burn
hair on fire
an emptiness echoing
oh but
the floor is much to cold to test
death will snuggle in and keep you there
soon enough
bony fingertips hushing any protests
life is no longer waiting
no secrets
no heartaches
nothing at all
he will wear a finely woven nightshirt
and order breakfast in bed
just close your eyes
sleep again
until fear itself is a dream
