Slumber

Fall heavy under the weight of day
Fall like the closing of the gates
Fall with calm and release
Fall like the setting sun
Fall from the highbrow of confidence
Fall from where the eyes are alert
Fall from the pedestal of a vigilant heart
Fall from the camp of focus
Fall in submission to thy body
Fall here, that you may find your rest

These eyes are weak
These lids are tired
They have beheld the biddings of men
The trail of the sun, have they observed
Now the arms that keep them high, falter
And the desire for slumber overwhelms
Fall, you tired eyes
Fall till shut
Fall that  rest may fill you
Fall, you who desires sleep
Fall that strength may return to your body
And to your soul, respite
