Sleep, Sleep, My Little One

Sleep, sleep, my little one
‘Tis better in this world of us
To sleep the sleep of the innocents
Than sleep the sleep of the just:
At least you’ll have a greater chance
To avoid long knives and plots
And bloody rendezvous.

For in this world, this world of us
The just is alien and his sleep
Most dangerous negligence:
Long knives will wait at corners round
And plots and darts abound
For all the just around.
For in this world, this world of us,
The sleep of innocents is better than
The sleep of all the just, my little one.

Sleep, sleep, my little one
And let outside the dark wind neigh
And rain and chill make fear
And the sea’s waves make storm and rage
And evil win
And the good disappear
And do not open your eyes sweet one
Before night and storm have passed away.

Sleeping

I’d rather be sleeping
It’s what I should do
I’d rather be sleeping
Than be here with you

I’d rather be dancing
In a circle of moons
Instead of romancing
And trying to swoon

I’d rather be sleeping

I’d rather be sleeping
There’s nothing at all
I’d rather be sleeping
Not take the fall

I’d rather be sleeping

We should go walking
Familiar scene
Continue talking
It’s bitter and mean

I’d rather be sleeping

We worry and try to get it all out
We yell and we cry
and we scream and we shout

I’d rather be sleeping

I’d rather be here than where I am now

I’d rather be sleeping
It’s what I should do
I’d rather be sleeping
Than be here with you

I’d rather be sleeping
 
one who waits

Spontaneous Lullaby To The Dream (For: K.H)

spontaneous lullaby to the dream
======================================================

- with the dedication for
'sleepless friend ' (for: K.H)
--------------

that night is so beautiful,
and our sky lightened up with stars.
everything around is sleeping, and everyone
is breathing the dream, only...only not you...

why? why my friend, cannot you sleep?
and maybe it love it defeated you
and now you are only repeating words
I love you...love you...

sleep darling, and not be worry for tomorrow.
what was dark, the new day will brighten.
and will bring new hopes and happiness.
sleep friend, already sleep now.

why? why my friend, cannot you sleep?
and maybe it love it defeated you
and now you are only repeating words
I love you...love you...

sleep darling, I will be
your angel in the dream.
sleep my friend, for you
I will be humming my quiet lullaby.

sleep darling and don't worry for tomorrow.
what was dark, the new day will brighten.
and will bring new hopes and happiness.
sleep friend... already sleep now.


close your eyes... and you will hear it...
close your eyes... and you will hear it...
close your eyes...

(in the cycle - 'poems for friends')

Hypnos

In my sleep, my somber sleep,
My eyes opened wide my somber sleep,
Aside Lord Hypnos, god of silent sleep,
Alone in a cave where no sun shines,
In an alias, along with Zeus alongside the divine,
Forever asleep surround by poppies and hypnogogic plants.
Under the spell of Thαnatos, and never wishing grants,
In my sleep, my somber sleep,
Around me Morpheous creeps,
To cast away sounds and never awake from sleep,
I dream under the dark skies of Nyx through the night,
In my dream I percieve Morpheous, Phobetor, and Phantasos as kings,
In my dreams escape and salvation is what they bring!
Through this cave flowed the river of Lethe,
The river of forgetfulness, the river in my mind I see,
My eyes opened wide I stare at the beauty of Salene,
Daughter of titans Hyperion and Theia beautiful is she,
In my somber sleep, Salene casts over me the moon,
Also the goddess of the moon, I fall asleep too soon,
Lord Hypnos god of silent sleep,
Keep me asleep and cast away the grief!
Keep me away from the sun that Helios brings,
Keep me asleep where poppies and hypnogogic plants sings!
Close the black curtains around me, let me sleep,
Let me swim in thoughts of epiphany, in the river of Lethe,
With Endymion forever I sleep under the moon of the lunar diety,
Forever asleep with Mythological Gods of different variety,
Lord Hypnos, forever keep my asleep,
Never more I was my hands in Lethe while I weep.
