The Sleepless Heart

That tear your heart and rob you of your mind,
Sweet mists of love give way to sulph’rous steams
In such a state true rest is hard to find.
The silver Moon and rolling greens and greys
Once filled my head before the sky turned gold;
Now chaos lurks throughout an endless maze
And demons dance through fields I once controlled.
One day, I know, true beauty will return,
That choirs of stars will sing again for me.
However hard the lessons are to learn
I must believe that life is poetry.
There’ll come a time when I find nights are blessed
With easy dreams and hours of blissful rest!
