Sleepy Time.

by The Midnight Owl

As the hours evade my watching gaze,

My eyes begin to darken.

As the moon awakes from her blissful slumber,

My legs forfeit and lie.

As the owl sings and coyotes cry,

 My lullaby resides.

My dearest sleeps, on another street,

My hands reach out for her.

I write this now, for you to see,

When the morning comes, and you have to pee.

I tried to rhyme, but it kinda sucks,

He slapped a fish, She ate his cake.

I’m done with this, I need my sleep,

I’ll write again, this promise I keep.
