Hollow Deep

Sleep swallows darkness
Framed pity dubiously blind
And I cannot wake
These mountains

Breath travels lightly
An unremarkable restraint
And I cannot reach
These dragons

Blood curdles morning
Clocks border upon lateness
And I cannot dream
These moments

Time swallows daylight
Elephants sit on my brow
And I cannot imagine
These eyes
