Talk Softly

A Poem

Talk softly

Otherwise wake me

Tell me how you feel

Set me free


Speak softly

Don’t wake me

Keep me from my bed

My sheets make me scream


Close the window

Quickly shut your blinds

Compare this to mine

It’s ever so kind


Speak softly

Don’t wake me

Tell me how you feel

Set me free


And now I’ll let the light in

The neon glow

Punches through my glass

Please, let me stay

And finish how we dance below


Speak softly

Do not ever wake me

I wait for this moment

When you’ll set me free


Speak softly

Don’t wake me

Tell me how you feel

Set me free.
