Hypnos

All-encompassing blackness
Creeping forth from the edge of awareness
Resting in hidden corners of the mind
Where weariness reigns
Extinguishing that kaleidoscope of light
Born on the corona of a star
Demanding audience with the gloom
Disjointing
Conquering
Even soft whisperings
Fade into nothingness
The entrance to that primeval maze
Unknown to consciousness
A tempest momentarily calmed
Silence too has a language
