That Thread

I hear you calling
my name so sweet
You tempt me

You know that I
am very tired
with no sleep

I will finish this
proving that I can
do this once again

Your voice so tender
like velvet so soft
but I resist

I know I’m getting
older, staying up
is the challenge

You can show me
sleepy wishes
but I have to win

I shall sleep soon
upon my soft bed
but not yet I beg

You sit silent now
but it wont last
I feel it building

I ask you not to
whisper that
sweet lullaby

You think you have
me hanging but I
cut that thread
