Sifting Sugar – a poem

“Sifting Sugar”
a poem by Jeremy C Kester

Snow drifts and sugar sifts,
I cannot imagine my world so innocent,
As angels I pray for me take away,
I refuse to allow myself to repent.

Sweet longing I, for a sweet lullaby,
I wish myself a gentle sleep,
For the bones and tired tones,
In need am I of a restful weep.

As beauty sings and bells do ring,
I hear forlorn worries in my bed.
Do tell of dreams and flowing streams,
Silence the words that I wish I never said.

Again I cannot think of innocent drink,
As the clouds of torment fly close.
And with alcohol my senses will stall.
While hide I from those feelings do engross.
