Lullaby From a Distance

"Vintage Crystal Microphone" - Manila, 18 October 2015
“Vintage Crystal Microphone” – Manila, 18 October 2015

anchored to

my bed

by a

voice

tenderly singing

mellow refrains

into my

ears,

quelling these

fears

that keep

slumber

at bay.

 

so soothed

so calmed,

my dreams

grow sweet

as a

tune plays

and keeps

playing;

a nocturnal

soundtrack

shielding my

sleeping self

from the

horrors

of my

waking hours.

 

i only

wish

the voice

was live –

unplugged,

unrecorded,

not a

file

on a

loop;

but you

are away

and one

must cope

as best

as one

can

until you

return.
