I wrote this one night while laying on my bed. Sleep evaded me for hours. I felt so bad lying and trying to force myself to sleep. I felt I had done injustice to the dreams once dreamt, injustice to my past. Each night is the same hating myself for letting go.

My face pressed upon the pillow
The darkness blinding my eyes

I am waiting for sleep to take me

In the world of blissful oblivion

Shackles and chains bind my mind

They torture me, soothe me

With dreams once dreamt

But each day the pain reduces

I move towards inevitable death

I am scared, I am panicked

Dreams and reality, fact and fiction

They refuse to separate

As fatigue clouds my mind

Sleep takes me to a dreamless world instead.
