While longing for sleep that was once my refuge,
I demand to know why it rejects me so.
The darkness creeps slowly upon me,
taking my mind for a ride. Racing through the
“what ifs” and the “I should ofs” It
drowns out all logic and reason. There
is no exit. As I approach the climax, I need off
Once my eye lids begin to flutter, I
ignore everything of importance.
Not out of ignorance, but for selfish reasons.
The need for tangible things fade as
my demands are met in the peaceful wonderland
My mind is finally resting in quiet slumber,
taking shelter from the next day’s attacks
that will enviably lead it back to the never ending cycle.
