Cotton and Willow
The midnight moon is out in full sight;
A measure of madness, a dragon's delight,
And lying here, head on my pillow,
Dreams are evading cotton and willow.

I can't tell if I'm awake or asleep,
Stuck in this madness that's mine to keep,
And I await your smile for my sanity,
But this ship is heading for calamity.

So won't you help me, I'm dreaming,
But my eyes are open and gleaming,
Won't you close them with a kiss,
Drown these fears with hidden bliss.

But none of this will come to fruition,
Tears fall with this lonesome intuition,
And hope cries out for blackness to tire,
For you to go and prove me a liar.

The moon has already gone down,
And dark dragons refuse to drown
On this lonely, tearsoaked pillow,
Caged in by cotton and willow.
Author's Notes:
I couldn't really tell you anything, except that I like it :)
