The Deep Sleep

Questions were asked, Answers denied;
I slept, slept and slept.

Darkness transpired, Light expired;
I slept, slept and slept.

Winter arrived, Spring passed;
I slept, slept and slept.

Dreams blossomed, Hope suffered;
I slept, slept and slept.

Happiness knocked, Wounds hollered;
I slept, slept and slept.

Songs were sung, Tears oozed;
I slept, slept and slept.

Love happened, Separation followed;
But –
On the bed of Arrogance,
With the soft pillow of Ignorance,
I slept, slept and slept.

Thanks for the comment as well as the query Pretty Me...

Well, Ignorance is to Arrogance as a mother is to a child...thus they are bound to be together...
