Snooze

As I enter its hollow,

I feel a certain ache

Slipping, overblown

-

The calm entices,

Tranquillising me

-

As my gaze

Shifts into the hollow

Approaches the void, vacant

-

The silence suffuses

Puts me in

A realm of thoughtlessness

-

A place dark, void,

Un-wilted yet

-

I find life, verity,

In the silence

More than the chaos

-

For the silence suffuses,

Puts me in

A realm of peace.

A Note

Snooze narrates the takeover sleep has on our emotions, pain and sorrow. Of how one experiences the most intense of such thoughts when falling asleep, but slips into the place of ultimate silence soon later. It emphasises on how sleep is a moment of pause in our lives, an essential one.
