Piece of Mine and Mind

Trembling bones. Arrested jaw. 
  Like bolt advised to keep affixed
Utter silence as I gape across the starry ceiling
  Thunder crawling  closer.
And I, a child, 
Abashed in her bosom, dizzy--
under opal sheets of serenity 
                               fraying			
                   ripped
unraveled.

Against the pane, the bough raps incessantly
  A talon scraping at my spine
Amid dissonance, her eyes a soothing refuge 
  Sails in squalls unwavered. 
Then as abrupt as lightning struck
  Piece of  mine and mind 
Acquiesce and into sleep
  I slip beyond remorse.
