Only Sleep Redeems – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon



“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside awakes.”  Carl Jung



Only Sleep Redeems

The night settles like velvet chocolate
smooth, blanketing my soul with a warmth
that curves my vision
where I am one, even
as the skeletons of life arise
and rattle my sense
of times past,
a purgative review of
exasperated possibilities that
were hard to grasp and which
only sleep redeems,
seeking transformation
for a new day.
