"Do I dare disturb the universe?" -T.S. Eliot

When my sister sleeps

Her face is always so peaceful

But she curls up in a tiny ball

Hugging her knees against her chest

She grips her legs

Her knuckles white

And I know

She dreams about death and sorrow

I know

She dreams of choking tears

Of sleepless, tired nights

Of losing me

Of losing us

Of losing herself

But her face is always so peaceful
