Good Night Prayer
Sprinkle my eyes with faery dust
Let me sleep forever
Dreaming symbolic images
So much more real than life.
Moving in a trance,
Magickal grace in the wave of a hand,
the easy turn, the arabesque
I don't even see you, just dots and dashes.
It's so much better this way.
No raging battles, no violent tears,
No wondering why you so easily
Lost in the trance,
One foot in front of the exquisite other,
They say the good die young
as if this were proof of injustice.
I say we each have our battles.
When they are vanquished,
we enjoy our victory
celebrate returning home.
