Your soft, lilting lullaby
I struggle and fail to stay alert
Drooping eyelids are hard to fight
Close them, now, and sleep
"Do not wake from my spell" it whispers.
"Sleep for me, my young soul" it hisses
Dreams and nightmares become one
How I long to awaken once more
And to be free of the trickster
