Walking on the edge,
Between awareness and sleep.
Sometimes...
I’m in the moment,
I feel my body,
The air around me,
Other times, I’m lost
In another world.
 
Walking on a high wire,
Between...
Quiet versus chaos,
Anxious feelings
Come and go.
 
Walking in a dream,
May rest come tonight,
Like warm,
Tea,
May comfort...
Arrive.

(2013)
