Sleep's Ballad

Sleep's Ballad

A Poem by VinneTheCreator

Uh it's late and I'm really sleep deprived. Hope you enjoy

Sleep's ballad
Sleep, my blissful faithful friend
Your always there for me at a long days end
Always there for me after the last moan   (XD dirty joke)
But make sure to respect my time alone
Ever day's a holiday when you give me a thoughtful gift
Some energy and anti-gravity to give my head a lift
If you ever withheld your present, my head would be a pheasant and fly away before crashing down into the blue
I'd probably just sit and lean whilst all the while dreaming sweet thoughts of you
And the dreams I dream are just as fantastical as any book you could imagine
With I the knight and you the princess sitting beyond the dragon
So I raise my sword and unload a yell fighting until my last breath
Till blood coats the ground, stray limbs lie around, and only you and I are left 
But the truth is sometimes we fight rough and bitterly compete
Neither you or I are awake enough give in and admit defeat
So we tough it out grim and dark watching the shadows grow long
But in the end our sacred bond is mended with just a song
So I give this ballad as my only token of thanks for staying with me all the while
Because of you, I live my day through, before giving the ceiling a smile
