CPR

As you sleep
As you gaze peacefully
At the inside of your eyelids
Like a peaceful rose
Content with catastrophe
The street light
Snooping through the window
Silhouettes of leaves
waltz in the breeze
Pure with poison
As I lie awake
As I gaze thoughtfully
At the trigger of trust
Like a prisoner to myself
Reckoning with relapse
