The Battle

The battle begins at dawn,
Where indolence negates the morn.
Where sleep and dream would delay,
The slightest ray of coming of day.

Down the sill it slithers in,
Across the bed, it snakes within.
A dragon breathing fires light.
Burning up the dark of night.

And torment, the final crime,
Negation of the waking time.
Brings anomalies to bed,
To shake awake the playing dead.

It's a battle of succumb
The dumb sun and a mind of numb.
It's a war cannot be won,
For who can stop the coming sun?

But war is war, a human plight,
And this sleeper non to bright.

The light is waning now beware
another night is close
from the door the light is fading
fading into dusk.
The morning rapture
will rise again
the battles sure to play
with that poet Seymour
as he greets another day.

I enjoyed your poem, can you tell? How about a good cup of hot coffee?

I agree with Elizabeth- you poems are always so eloquent and they flow so well, this is no exception.
