Turn off

Rise to the screen,
Every morning snoozed
Undone with things
To bestow us
Settles the room again
Stilled in the pink walls
Sometimes lullaby to the stars ,
Haunted avow past time.
The screen popped .
Snooze again?
That's cool but i
Turned off in vein.
I look out
To find anew
For passing days,
I find none.
Though tulips and lily to gaze .
The screen popped
But i turned off .
I walked out ,
Their cherry petrichor to chase .
Leaned with hypnotic limerence
Absorbs me all through
Glitters thralling the greens .
Ah! I heard the buzz ,
Albeit i lavished the
Unstinting honey .
To see,
The golden peeping out of blue ,
I walked out
And i found me anew.
