while i sleep

you, alone in your chair of green
looking at me as if…
you’ve known me all your life
you have

you watch me with a loving stare
of nothingness
of sadness so deep, the tears have dried up

you believe in your world
made up amidst feathers
anything to make you feel safe
and loved

you ask me
though silently
please don’t ignore me while i sleep

  1. strangly, I felt I played the role of the one in the green chair, alone and not through the first person voice (which i usually do, I think) so it was direct communication my way
    and I Did respond. You spoke to me, I’ve enjoyed exploring yr site, I will return, thanx so
