Rest Easy



 Rest Easy              (tag poem unedited)

  Work weary and teary eyed, waiting 
for the big break, a slow day, some pay back 
Afraid to  love without hesitating
Tensed and always prepared for the attack... 

Strangling on the words that might do magic
when all else, including prayers have failed.
eighing misery against the tragic-
feeling guilty once  self pity's sailed.

  Karmic incantations make me wary
going round takes years before returning.
reams go up in smoke in easy flurries;
hearts ache before heads have lost  their yearning. 

Rest is for the innocent and carefree
able to close  down and hear their  sighs- 
ot a task so simple for the likes of me...
nightmares wait upon my closing eyes.

So please rest easy when  you have the chance
take your reverie while yet you may,
life is incident and circumstance
tomorrow  rests on easy yesterdays.
