Rest Instead

And what of all the sleeping words?
We had forgot to awaken,
and so they go on and we allow them
dozing, day in, day out,
while you wring your heart, your hands,
in hopes to at least bleed one drop of ink,
when I’d rather you do nothing but
“just rest instead,” and try not to think
of walls, or shackles, or even if there is
a dragon guarding the castle. But lay
your head down and “rest instead,” with all
the dozing, sleeping words, and
wait like them, for what kiss might come
to break all spells and awaken you at last.
