Sooth me lull me but awake me

by Everlasting   Jan 8, 2021


Sooth me lull me
in stillness
in quietness
in darkness
sway me ocean of tranquility
sway me in your waves
in your buoyancy
sway me
tonight
sway me
tomorrow
sway me
the day after tomorrow
sway me
past the reefs of consciousness
sway me
past the shore of subconscious-ness
sway me
deeper into the unknown
sway me
sooth me lull me
but then awake me in you embrace ocean of tranquility
awake me
fresh
awake me
salty
awake me
to see the sunshine rays without my sight being blinded
awake me

    I read this when you posted and somehow I thought I had left a comment. Sorry!

    To me, this reads like a poem that was written straight to the page/screen, so to speak. I often do this too, especially in the draft section of PnQ. The poem itself induces a semi-hypnotic state. I'm not sure if this was your intent, or it was just your state of mind. The repetitive swaying is like a lullaby and then after a spell in the embrace of the ocean of tranquility, the 'fresh' and 'salty' process of waking up. Again, the repeating words 'awake me' like an acceptance of wanting to awake to see the new day, full of gentle rays.
