Sleep…

Sleep,
Like the several- headed Anantha,
overpowers me
With one look in the eye.
Even before my nerves signal weariness,
my eyes droop,
and my head becomes heavy.
All I can do
is,
shut the eyes,
and resting the head on the pillow,
Go to sleep.

Both of them listen to no one else
but that strange overwhelming sensation,
which comes upon you
In silence,
like a cat.

Sleep…
unknowing,
unconscious,
and undisturbed.
It is the true escape
from the prowling felines
and sneaky monsters
of everyday life.

So,
Let the Snake of Sleep
crawl upon you
and drag you deep into it.

Sleep…
