Fickle Comfort Slips Away

Fickle comfort slips away,

What is the reason,

It refuses to say.

What it can,

It may not do.

It deserts Me

To please You!

*****

Capricious peace will not bind

The fatigued heart,

The ragged mind,

The motionless expressions,

The restless sleep.

It sports

Within your keep.

*****

Frolic confidence makes its escape

While I watch a video tape.

It fades like the sunset rays,

And I am not sure what kind of game it plays.
