Sleep 

When I sleep
fear dissipates
anger subsides
there’s no more hate

Chaos is buried
noises quieten 
gone is the pressure 
to attain enlightenment 

Loneliness fades
taking longing with it
and the aching stops growing
for at least a bit

Muscles relax
breathing is deep
I feel safe and good enough
whenever I sleep
