Sleepless Death

 Sleep is my one true friend

She takes me to a place where I sway and bend

Here I lay in my slumber

Growing darker
Getting number

I can escape reality
And lose my mind
But then recall
I am running on stolen time

I feel more happiness, cocooned in these cotton sheets
Any beast I can and will defeat, in my time while I'm asleep

It may sound pathetic
But in reality it is tragic
My life is truly chaotic

A tiredness has taken me over completely
It numbs my sense and drags me into this abyss

Darkness is like a blanket, protecting me from thoughts of sadness
I've completely shutdown
I've ran from the town
Somewhere along the way I dropped my crown

And somehow, being evil is better than being sad
My body drags on

† † † † † † † † † †
If only this heart would stop beating
If only it would stop loving
It could stop hurting
† † † † † † †
It could stop feeling † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †
My body began to shut down
Stop breathing

I'm on a downward spiral
Down the rabbit hole

† † † † † † † † Anxiety
† † † † † † † † † † † † † † Self-loathing
I stop altogether and find inner peace
Once I dream forever
