ghost in my room


I lay there motionless at first and peered
Along the broad expanse of sleep that lured
Around creeping warm yet weird
Among the maze of shifting scenes unsure
Immense yet small they seem and gather round
I am still and defenseless as if bound
By unseen hands they melt into the mist

The light of day has withered fast to show
The shadows of my room bathed in grey
Glowing like shimmering gems aglow
And now my eyes keep the ghost at bay
Retreat with grace and slip away to sleep
