    Sandman's Bride

    As I’m lying in bed
    they share
    my pillowed head,
    my shadows
    and demons
    by my side,
    as they wait
    for the Sandman
    to claim his bride,
    vulnerable now
    to the demons
    that prey,
    while my shadows
    to keep them at bay,
    for they
    have always
    protected me,
    from my torment
    ever there
    yet you cannot see,
    while the Sandman
    claims his bride tonight,
    the shadows
    will keep vigil
    until morning’s light.

    you know this speaks more then one can imagine.... The dreams we dream can try to consume us..... We have to know that they are just dreams that we can break free of......... red

    Rhymer commented on Sandman's Bride


    I like this poem edging toward the dark side, never thought of shadows protecting me. 10 from me.

    I can imagine the whole spectacle unfolding right in front of my eyes....

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
