Sleep Eternal

I want to sleep the sleep of the dead and
No dreams, no thoughts
no fantasies spun in gold.
I will not listen to the Bard’s tale
of love everlasting,
that is the making of
fairy tales.
Of Kings and Queens,
Princes and Paupers,
Princesses lost and found.
Of castles spun in the clouds
with dances that last all night long.
I want none of that.
What I want only Thanatos can provide.
A deeper sleep than the one
wrought by Morpheous.
