A love letter to sleep

Sweet Jesus 

How I love you

 

So sinfully, 

a sweet sin 

I commit

all too readily

 

Because, my love 

your soft touch 

is like air to me 

 

I need it 

I want it 

so desperately 

 

And when I have it 

mankind knows no words 

to describe 

such pure ecstasy 

 

You're the sin 

of all sins 

you bring out the worst in me

 

Is it sloth

that I lust for you 

that I desire you 

so greedily

 

Or pride?

The delicious feeling 

That comes

when you deliver my dreams 

to me 

 

Or is it the wrath 

that I encase 

when you are taken

too soon  

from me? 

 

I do not care 

If you are sin 

then I will sin 

because your sin 

is heaven
