Perpetual Slumber

Protected by Copyscape
To wake up from this stagnancy is a wish avant garde
Would you please knock damn it knock
until you knock it off ---
It creeps on you and lies therein hard.

At times, very few, the courage seeps in
You attempt, prod & tell your heart to smile
to just stop dancing to nightmares !
Prompt responses pile up
Tis not today, nor the time,
to writhe and crawl out of the dark,
Yet another day harks to no bark.

I plead guilty of perpetual slumber.
so far.
