nightmare! But I am awake.

Thursday, November 05, 2009 4 Comments

I stared at the walls

as they closed on me

Tried closing my eyes

Yet sleep farther away.

trying to reason

why it happens to me.

I feel tired at the end of the day

long to curl up and go to sleep

yet, I am denied

the luxury of blissful sleep.

The darkness I abhor

As even the shadows dread to show,

Uh! life is no sheet music

it changes its tune often

difficult to choose between breath or death

it's a war for me, like every other person

But then my hands are tied and I don't know how to fight.


Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard. Google

4 Candles:

Difficult to resist as Sweet Sleep magically waves her gentle wand over you...
The soft cloudy cushions and bed beckons you,
Heavy with sleep your lids shuts her windows down,
What's keeping you back dear?

At one, I learnt crawling was fun. At forty one, I still feel crawling is fun #blamemykneesnotme
